Call for Papers
United by Variety: Applied Arts and Ethnographic Objects in
    Conservation
(In Vielfalt vereint: Kunsthandwerk und Ethnographie in der
    Restaurierung)
Conference organized by the VdR specialty groups for Applied Arts
Objects, Ethnographic Objects and Leather and Related Materials
Reiss-Engelhorn Museum
Mannheim, Germany
March 25-27, 2004

Conservators are challenged to identify, preserve, and treat a
variety of materials that have been processed, used, and combined in
numerous ways.  Therefore, particularly for conservators who work
with objects from ethnographic, folk art, and applied arts
collections inter-disciplinary knowledge, skills, and contacts are
crucial.  Within these specializations, there are overlapping and
related conservation problems, and approaches to solutions.  We
intend this joint conference to set the stage for exchanges on
common issues, and to help delineate differences between the
specialties.  We invite presentations covering a large range of
conservation topics, including storage and collection management as
well as research, treatment, and exhibition concerns.

The conference offers a forum for papers of 20 to 30 minutes in
length and invites conservators as well as professionals from
related fields. Posters are also welcome.  The conference languages
will be German and English without simultaneous translation. Limited
travel support for presenters may be available.  Please send an
abstract (250 words) of your proposed paper or poster by September
30, 2003. We plan to publish the conference proceedings in book
format or as a CD-ROM.
