Deadline : 0000

Bibliographie

Conference, October 13-16, 2019
The American University in Cairo
Cairo, Egypt

On the occasion of The American University in Cairo’s 100th Anniversary,
the Academy of Liberal Arts Department of Rhetoric and Composition and
the Rare Books and Special Collections Library (RBSCL) solicits paper
proposals from librarians, archivists, curators, faculty, collectors,
writers, independent scholars, and graduate students for its Conference
– *From Archives to Arch-Lives*. We also encourage proposals for
slideshows, video presentations, panels, and roundtables organized
around common themes. Proposals on digital humanities and other forms
of digital scholarship and data-driven projects are also welcome.

Archives are no longer the exclusive domain for historians. More than
ever, archives and special collections increasingly wield power over the
shape and direction of historical scholarship, collective memory, and
national identity. The notions of archives, history, memory, identity
and power are interlinked, with archives taking a prominent and
controlling role that directs how we remember and how we, and others,
see ourselves.
