Call For Papers
Thirty years of innovation 1900-1939
High Wycombe
May 2002

This one-day conference, which will be held in High Wycombe, aims to
raise issues from within furniture conservation, history and design,
which have not been previously explored together, across these three
disciplines.

We wish to share information and raise awareness for the
preservation of furniture and provide context through archival
support, for this currently disparate, large group of objects. We
are looking for papers based upon British, European and United
States furniture.

In this first conference on twentieth century furniture, we will be
looking for papers based upon practical experience, which support
our field of investigation. Have you conserved a piece of furniture
(1900-1939), or identified a material, in furniture which has been
problematic to work with, observed a design history issue which
warrants discourse, or have access to underrated archival material.

Papers will be 30 minutes duration and will be aimed at an informed
audience. If you are interested in speaking at this conference then
please provide a 300 word abstract by January 10th 2002, which you
can send to either Prof Jake Kaner <jake.kaner [at] bcuc__ac__uk> or Sally
Sugrue <sally.sugrue [at] bcuc__ac__uk> at
