ICMAH Annual Conference 2020 Call for papers

In the last few years, ICOM and its members have reflected upon these difficult issues. In 2017 the subject for the international museum day was Contested histories: Saying the unspeakable in museums, and this year it is going to be Museums for equality: Diversity and Inclusion. This year’s ICMAH’s annual conference intends to contribute with that broad examination of our institutional and professional practices. In Bogotá, ICMAH intends to examine some of the “difficult issues” that affect how societies and their histories are represented in museums, and how museums interact with their surroundings.

This is why ICMAH’s 2020 Annual Conference  subject this year is “Difficult Pasts, Complicated Presents, and Ambiguous Futures: Contested Histories in Archaeological and Historical Museums”

The conference will be held in Bogota Colombia on 21-23 October, 2020,  hosted by ICOM Colombia
