The theme of the conference is: Engaging with Archives and Records: Histories and Theories.

Topics might include, but are not limited to:
-hidden (and not so hidden) histories of particular recordmaking and recordkeeping cultures and communities
Proposals for papers should be made in the form of abstracts of 450-500 words and should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, 6 February 2015. We will advise acceptance by early March 2015.
Following the conference, presenters will be invited to submit their contributions for a peer-reviewed, post-conference publication on the theme of the conference.
