What does “queering memory” mean under the political, social and cultural conditions of the present? How can the diversity of queer histories be made visible in these digitized times?
ALMS 2019 Berlin will explore the potential for generating publicities for queer archives, libraries, museums and special collections, with a special focus on the arts and artistic interventions. ALMS use the word “queer” to include both same-sex or bi-sexuality and histories of trans identity and gender diversity. ALMS 2019 invites people from all over the world working in queer archives, libraries, special collections and museums, researching the queer past or generally interested in queer history. Archivists, librarians,museum staff and custodians of special collections from public, private,academic and grassroots institutions or organizations are all highly welcome.Artists and scholars working on any aspect of the queer past, in any region of the world, are encouraged to apply.
Abstracts due 15 January 2019.
