"The Challenge of Multiple Identities. Multiethnicity in Genealogy, Local History and Regional Memory - Challenges and Opportunities for Libraries and Other Memory Institutions"
Genealogy and Local History Section joint with Asia and Oceania Section and Information Technology Section
We would like to invite presenters from a wide range of countries to discuss what they have learnt from projects with a multi-ethnic component.
The main session welcomes papers that discuss:
saving and promoting historical and cultural memories supporting contacts and understanding between different local and regional communities the role of libraries, museums and archives in participatory projects based on multi-ethnic and multi generational collaboration. Participants are encouraged to discuss both successes and failures in their papers.
We encourage evidence based practice and invite presentations and analysis of projects which be of practical value to others. Submissions in other formats than academic papers (such as reports, essays) are welcome.can
