5th International Conference on the Inclusive Museum

02 August 2012, Barbados

This Conference is to be held at the University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados, from 2 to 5 August 2012.

Plenary speakers include some of the leading thinkers in museum studies and leading practitioners, as well as numerous paper, colloquium and workshop presentations.

Participants are invited to submit a proposal for an in-person paper presentation, workshop/interactive session, or a jointly presented colloquium. Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each stream also has its own talking circle, a forum for focused discussion of issues. For those unable to attend the Conference in person, virtual participation is also available.

Presenters may choose to submit written papers to The International Journal of the Inclusive Museum, a fully refereed academic Journal. Virtual participants also have the option to submit papers for consideration by the Journal. All registered Conference participants receive a complimentary online subscription to the Journal. This subscription is valid until one year after the Conference end date.

The 2012 Conference coincides with the 2012 Crop Over Festival. For Barbadians and visitors who have joined in the summer festival known as Crop Over, there is nothing to compare with the experiences. That is why this one of a kind feeling is described as ‘The Sweetest Summer Festival”. For more information on the Crop Over Festival please visit the following link.
