“The Challenge of Multiple Identities – Multiethnicity in Genealogy, Local History and Regional Memory – Challenges and Opportunities for Libraries and Other Memory Institutions” is the theme for the main session at the Satellite Meeting in Vilnius, Lithuania, 16-17 August 2017.
Genealogy and Local History Section (GENLOC) joint with Asia and Oceania Section and Information Technology Section invite proposals for papers to be presented at the session.

We would like to invite presenters from a wide range of countries to discuss what they have learnt from projects with a multi-ethnic component.

The session welcomes papers that discuss:

  • saving and promoting historical and cultural memories
  • supporting contacts and understanding between different local and regional communities
  • the role of libraries, museums and archives in participatory projects based on multi-ethnic and multi-generational collaboration

We encourage evidence-based practice and invite presentations and analysis of projects which can be of practical value to others.

Submissions in other formats than academic papers (such as reports and essays) are welcome.
For the full description of the call for papers, see WLIC 2017. Click here

Proposals are due by March 18, 2017.
