“The Challenge of Multiple Identities – Multiethnicity in Genealogy, Local History and Regional Memory – Challenges and Opportunities for Libraries and Other Memory Institutions”

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 an d 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.
