Archives and Records Association Conference 2014
This summer I will be speaking at the ARA conference, Survival of the Fittest: Strengths, Skills, and Priorities for 2014 and Beyond. The talk will be an extended version of the presentation I gave for the symposium at Camberwell in June. It will be titled, again, The Conservation of a Scrapbook of 19th Century Fashion Plates and cover the work that did for the final project of my masters. The talk will also look a bit more generally at the issues of keeping scrapbooks of mixed media in archives, and how they can be best cared for and preserved.
The presentation will be extended to 20 minutes, from the original 7 minutes, and therefore be at least twice as nerve-racking! Hope to see some familiar faces there, it looks as though there will be some really interesting talks over the three days.
The speakers biographies and abstracts can be found here: http://www.archives.org.uk/ara-conference/speakers-biographies-a-abstracts.html
The Conference is in Newcastle, and runs from the Wednesday 27th- Friday 29th August. I will be speaking from 11.50am -12.10pm on the Friday morning.
