Call for papers--Middle Eastern Manuscripts

From: Louise Wilson <louise.wilson>
Date: Thursday, November 30, 2006
The Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation, University of
Melbourne, Australia
<URL:> is organising a
Symposium on the Care and Conservation of Middle Eastern
Manuscripts, which will be held at the University of Melbourne in
November 2007. The symposium will explore cultural sensitivities
related to the display, handling, storage and conservation treatment
of Middle Eastern manuscript collections and outline materials and
techniques of manufacture that impact on their condition.

It is intended that the symposium will be a showcase for
international expertise in the field, introducing the audience to
the various treatment solutions and protocols adopted across the
globe. If you are interested in participating in what promises to be
a rich and engaging symposium, the organising committee would be
delighted to hear from you. The deadline for submission of a 300
word abstract is 29 December 2006. Please forward submissions to

    Louise Wilson, Symposium Coordinator
