The New England Archivists (NEA) is working in collaboration with the Journal of Contemporary Archival Studies (JCAS) to publish original articles on the topic of 19th-century photography collections and techniques. The JCAS will select submissions for a special issue to be published online in conjunction with the NEA Fall 2015 Meeting focusing on 19th-century photography to be held in Providence, Rhode Island, on November 7, 2015.
Authors should submit original works of recent research on:
— the history of 19th-century photography collections
— management and descriptive projects involving these materials
— the use of 19th-century photo collections by researchers, artists,
and staff in interesting projects and performances.
Original works by students, archivists, librarians, researchers, and artists will be accepted and reviewed according to the parameters set by the JCAS. See the JCASwebsite for criteria guidelines and information on the submission process (elischolar.library.yale.edu/jcas/).
