Call for Papers

Emerging Professionals session
"Positive Futures in an Uncertain World"
ICON Conference 2013
University of Glasgow, Scotland
April 10-12, 2013

In partnership with the University of Glasgow

Calling all conservators in training, conservation interns and
recently graduated conservators. The Emerging Professionals parallel
session of the 2013 ICON Conference requires your knowledge,
thoughts and experiences.

ICON extends a call for papers from Emerging Professionals.  As new
and emerging conservators step into the increasingly uncertain
climate of the present heritage sector, positive attitudes and
creative problem solving are a must.  In the face of funding cuts
and staff losses, new paths are being forged to care for and connect
with our cultural heritage.  What are the current issues in
conservation, and where do we as Emerging Professionals fit into
these?  How can we provide new and innovative solutions?  What is
the changing role of the conservator in the current professional
climate, and how does this affect the way conservation will be
taught and practised in the future?  Papers are also welcome from
conservators who do not consider themselves new or emerging, but
have a vision of what Emerging Professionals are capable of.

Part of this session will be shared with Icon's Archaeology Group,
focusing on the question: "10 things I wasn't told at University".
Abstracts are welcomed on this and any other topic relevant to the
Emerging Professional.

Abstracts, 300 words maximum, must be submitted by 10 September

Please email to<-at->gmail<.>com

Please include names, addresses and email addresses of all authors
and indicate the author for correspondence.

Papers will be chosen by 10 October 2012.

Bookings open 1 November 2012.

Deadline for submission of papers to special conference issue of the
Journal is 28 February 2013.
