Our Common Code: Ethics in the Archives
Friday, October 26, 2018
John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum, Boston, MA
New England Archivists (NEA) invites submissions of session proposals for the Fall 2018 Meeting, "Our Common Code: Ethics in the Archives." The meeting will take place at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum in Boston, Massachusetts, on Friday, October 26, 2018. The deadline for proposals is July 15, 2018.
We make ethical decisions in our work as archivists, especially towards preserving a fair and inclusive historical record and collective memory. These decisions help shape our professional ethics, and sharing these experiences improves our ethical context. The Fall 2018 Meeting will give archivists and allied professionals an opportunity to discuss archival ethics in three areas: appraisal and acquisitions, description, and access.
The Fall 2018 Program Committee is seeking proposals for presentations that facilitate conversation about archival ethics. Presentations can take the form of case studies, stories, or lightning talks. We encourage creative approaches, and we will give priority to proposals that foster group conversation. Each presentation must be no more than ten minutes long, and proposals must indicate which of the three above thematic areas they relate to.
