#DCDC18 :: Registration closes this Friday! (26 October)

19-21 November 2018 :: BCEC, Birmingham

There are only a few days left to register for the DCDC18 Conference<http://dcdcconference.com/> - the foremost and largest event in the UK bringing together professionals working with collections from the archive, library, museum, heritage and academic sectors, from across the UK, Ireland, Europe and further afield.

DCDC18 will be held from 19-21 November at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre, UK, and is hosted by The National Archives and Research Libraries UK.

DCDC18 will explore our theme of memory and transformation. Over three days 68 speakers from 48 organisations, in 25 keynote, panel and workshop sessions will inspire, discuss and reflect on how past and future memories held within collections impacts on our work, missions, practices, and most importantly, our relationship with our audiences and users:

* What role have collections and heritage organisations played in the health of the human mind, including through reminiscence therapies and supporting mental wellness, are examples of their potential and value to individuals and society.

* What impact does the role of anniversaries played in securing funding and footfall in recent years? And how do these occasions allow institutions to produce innovative collaborations and engage new audiences? Does heritage risk being dominated by the cult of remembrance?

* The absence of memories can be as powerful as their presence. Which communities and individuals are, or are not, represented within collections, and what we can do to ensure their voices will be heard?

* How can technology and digital methodologies help us to preserve the 'memories of the future', and what is their impact on our institutional and professional practices?



DCDC18 Keynotes

Jane Ellison, Head of Creative Partnerships at the BBC, will deliver the opening keynote presentation on 20 November. Jane leads the BBC's work on partnerships with the UK cultural and knowledge sectors including most recently for Civilisations (BBC 2) and World War One on the BBC. She is a Trustee of Libraries Connected, a member of the Leadership for Libraries Taskforce and of the Learning and Participation Committee of the Royal Opera House. Jane's presentation will explore the question of 'Anniversaries: the milestone of history?, addressing why anniversaries are such powerful landmarks for reflection, and are they too dominant in setting the agenda?

Nathan Sentance is a Project Officer working on First Nations programming at the Australian Museum, was a participant in the 2017 Wesfarmers/NGA Indigenous Arts Leadership program, and is currently the convener of the Australian Society of Archivists, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Special Interest Group. His presentation on 20 November will explore blogging as resistance, and blogging as a method to discuss the role of memory institutions in the destruction, exclusion and misremembering of First Nations culture and history.

On 21 November we will hear from Lae'l Hughes-Watkins, University Archivist at Kent State, where she administers the largest collection on the Kent State shootings. Lae'l's research focuses on outreach to marginalised communities, documenting student activism within disenfranchised populations, and utilising narratives of oppressed voices within the curricula of post-secondary education spaces. Lae'l is also the Founder of Project STAND<https://standarchives.com/>, a national consortium of nearly forty colleges and universities working to create a digitally centralised location for access to primary resources illuminating the narratives of student activists and organisations from traditionally underrepresented communities. Lae'l is the recipient of the Academic Research Libraries Leadership and Career Development Program fellowship and Society of Ohio Archivist Merit Award for her leadership in Project STAND.

The closing keynote presentation will be given by Jo Fox, Professor of Modern History, Institute of Historical Research, School of Advanced Study, University of London. She specialises in the history of propaganda and psychological warfare in the 20th and 21st centuries. Jo's presentation will explore 'Fake News' into the 21st Century. Are there creative ways that historians might use 'fake news' as evidence of popular mentalities, allowing for a deeper understanding of human behaviours in a complex world? And, if 'fake news' is critical historical evidence, how should it be preserved and curated?



Wellcome Panel

DCDC18 is supported by the Wellcome Collection, who will be hosting a special session on Tuesday 20 November: The Long Table is an experimental open public forum that is a hybrid performance, installation, roundtable discussion and dinner party designed to facilitate dialogue by gathering together people with common interests. This session will be hosted by Lois Weaver and will explore the question 'Whose Memories?'

Lois Weaver is a lecturer, performance artist, writer, director and activist. She was co-founder of Spiderwoman Theatre, Split Britches Company and the WOW Theatre in New York and Artistic Director of Gay Sweatshop Theatre in London. She is Professor of Contemporary Performance at Queen Mary, University of London and is a Wellcome Public Engagement Fellow.



Connect and Collaborate

We know that networking is a vital part of any conference experience. The DCDC ethos is collaborative and cross-sectoral, and DCDC18 is the best opportunity to connect with colleagues from across all the different cultural sectors. That's why we provide multiple networking opportunities across the three days of the event, including pre-conference workshops<http://dcdcconference.com/pre-conference-workshops18/>, a drinks reception at the internationally renowned Ikon Gallery (19 November), and a Conference Dinner at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (20 November).

The pre-conference reception will feature a short presentation on a new Digitisation Networking Group initiative led by Jisc, The National Archives and Research Libraries UK, and involving other key stakeholder groups. This will be followed by a networking activity based on the aims and vision of the project, during which you will meet colleagues from multiple different sectors.
