Call for Papers

"Practical Philosophy or Making Conservation Work"
2015 Textile Specialty Group Session
AIC 43rd Annual Meeting
Miami, Florida
May 13-16, 2015

The deadline for submission is Wednesday, September 10, 2014

All aspects of conservation, from preventive care to in-painting,
include both theory and practice.  In most cases, theory supports
practice. Nonetheless, conservation professionals are sometimes
challenged in their efforts to smoothly meld the two.  Many factors,
ranging from available resources to questions of public access and
politics, can thwart even the best treatment plans and noblest
intentions.  The transition from what we initially envision as ideal
to what we eventually acknowledge as realistic often requires
compromise.  But, are less than satisfactory outcomes inevitable?
Or, can better solutions evolve from necessity?  We invite
presentations that discuss how philosophical principles can be
successfully translated into workable--even superior--practice.

Textile Specialty Group Session papers are encouraged to address the
meeting theme but may also explore other topics relevant to that
