Caught in a Compromising Position
UKIC Ethnography Section
Spring Seminar and AGM
Museum of London
April 19, 2004

Papers are sought from those who have had to reconcile and adapt to
the demands and changing priorities of conservators of ethnographic
collections within a climate of shifting expectations for such

Possible areas of discussion include:

    *   How to reconcile the often conflicting requirements of time,
        long-term object care and ethics? Particularly when there is
        increasing interaction with corporate and project culture.

    *   Access to collections. This is becoming an ever more
        important priority for many museums. Has this influenced
        treatment or display decisions?

    *   The development of innovative approaches to funding

    *   Whether such activities raised awareness of the role of
        conservation or illustrated the decision making processes

The Deadline for receipt of provisional titles and synopses of
papers is February 27, 2004
