Common Archival Heritage

Call for Papers: ICARUS Convention #31

The State Archives of the Republic of North Macedonia will co-host the 31st semi-annual convention of our partner ICARUS (International Centre for Archival Research), to take place in Skopje and UNESCO World Heritage Site Ohrid.

Focus of the convention and call for papers

As most of historical processes are not geographically or otherwise isolated, archives worldwide, whether national, regional, or even personal, have also a mission to keep and present documents concerning common history. Hence the intention of the 31st ICARUS Convention, under the topic “Common Archival Heritage: Preservation, Accessibility, Digitisation” is to shed light on the importance of common archival heritage that should be a base for a fruitful scientific and cultural cooperation as well as for the promotion of good neighbourly relations.

The organisers invite participants to highlight archival heritage of international/regional interest, its preservation, accessibility, digitisation, especially its presentation on online archival platforms and the development of digital research tools. Moreover, the contributions should be related to
the provenance and preservation of the archival heritage in the context of political, legal and ethical issues.

Deadline for the submission of papers (in English): 30 September 2023
