Some interesting museum- and history-related conferences with CFP deadlines coming up.
Rethinking Museums, an interdisciplinary academic conference 5/3-5/4 in Seattle. Looks like it’s aimed mostly at folks in the Seattle area. They have a lovely logo, and of course, who doesn’t like to talk about the future of museums? Abstracts due 3/26
SHOT, the history of technology conference, this year in DC 10/18-10/21. Abstracts due 3/16 (and if anyone would like to join a panel on curating medical instrument collections, contact me!)
For some reason I thought there were more, but it seems that the MCN cfp closed last week.
Coming up here on PH: a discussion of the Academic Health Center (UMN) History Project kickoff which happened last week, thoughts on nurses in the military (our museum’s next exhibit), and even more about timelines!
