A reminder for students in archival/information studies programs:
Call for Student Proposals – ACA Conference 2014 New Ideas, New Voices: The Student Session Victoria, June 26-28, 2014
Are you an archival studies student with an idea that you want to share with the archival community? Are you researching a paper and would like to take it to the next stage? Are you honing your public speaking skills, and looking for ways to enhance your CV? The ACA 2014 Program Team wants to hear from you!
Proposals are now being accepted for the ACA Conference’s annual student session. Submissions relating to the conference theme “Archivatopia” are encouraged, although proposals on other archival topics will also be considered. For more information about the conference theme, visit the ACA conference website at http://www.archivists.ca/content/program
All full-time students who are presently enrolled in, or will graduate from, a Masters program in Canadian archival studies in the 2013-14 academic year are eligible to apply.
The student session, “New Ideas, New Voices,” will be held on June 26, 2014, from 1:30-3:00. For the session, the Program Team will select three student papers to be presented (15 to 20 minutes each), each by a student from a different institution.
Thanks to the Association of Canadian Archivists Foundation (ACAF), those selected participants who do not have full-time employment will receive a bursary (administered through their school), which covers the cost of the registration fees as well as some assistance for the travel and accommodation expenses.
Please include the following in your submission:
. Your name, telephone number, postal address, and email address; . Name and address of the school/program that you attend; . Title and abstract of your paper (max. 250 words); and . A one-sentence statement indicating your commitment to attend the 2014 ACA Conference and to deliver your paper in person if selected by the Team.
