DOCAM 2015 – The Document Academy Downunder

During 20 to 22 July 2015 the School of Information Studies at CSU jointly with the Faculty of the Arts and Social Sciences at UTS, hosted the 12th Annual meeting of the Document Academy (DOCAM 2015).  Conference Co-chairs were Paul Scifleet from Swinburne University, Maureen Henninger from UTS, and Mary Anne Kennan from CSU. DOCAM conferences provide a unique multidisciplinary space for reporting experimental and critical research on the concept of the document and documentation, with participants from fields as diverse as information, media, museum, archives, culture, and science studies.  Delegates came from 16 countries and papers were innovative and exciting. The keynote speaker, Professor Geoffrey Bowker (School of Information and Computer Science at the University of California at Irvine, where he is the director of the Laboratory for Values in Design in Information Systems and Technology), opened the conference with a challenge to participants to think beyond boundaries, to question and explore.
