The Archives Hub is collaborating with CRESC (Centre for Research on Socio-Cultural Change) in order to host a small 2 day conference, March 19-20 here at the University of Manchester: "Archives 2.0: Shifting Dialogues between Users and Archivists." We are looking for presenters!
We realise that the deadlines for submitting an abstract are incredibly tight (February 15th). Apologies for not circulating the CFP at an earlier date -- logistics prohibited it for a variety of reasons. Nonetheless, the conference is already shaping up to be a real success and we have confirmed the following speakers:
* Geof Bowker, Director, Center for Science, Technology and Society, Santa Clara University
* Michael Moss, Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute, University of Glasgow
* Sheila Henderson, London South Bank University
* Rachel Thomson, Open University

If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact me offlist.
