Very much looking forward to my involvement with this interesting conference!
Announcing DOCAM 2015: “Documents unbounded”
The 12th annual international Conference of the Document Academy
The Document Academy’s 12th annual meeting, DOCAM ’15 will be taking place from July 20-22, 2015 at the University of Technology’s Broadway campus in Sydney, Australia. It will be the first DOCAM to be held in the antipodes! So, put the dates in your diary and prepare for a visit to Australia to explore the conference theme of “Documents Unbounded”.
The international Document Academy conference provides a unique multidisciplinary space for reporting experimental and critical research on the concept of the document and documentation in the widest sense. Participants draw on scholarly traditions and experiences from the arts, humanities, social sciences, education, and natural science, and come from fields as diverse as information, media, museum, archives, culture, and science studies.
In 2015 we will come together under the theme of “Documents Unbounded” to examine the challenges ahead, as our understanding of data, documents, records, artefacts, evidence and memory, form in the continuously changing landscape of new media and communications.
The Document Academy, commenced as a co-sponsored initiative of Program of Documentation Studies, University of Tromsø, Norway, and the School of Information, University of California, Berkeley has grown into a truly international event. In 2015, two Australian universities and their information programs will co-host the 12th annual meeting of the Document Academy (DOCAM). They are the IKM and Digital Studies Program University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) and School of information Studies at Charles Sturt University (CSU).
