Call for papers: 11th VDR Conservators’ Day Looking for TRACES. Finding (HI)STORIES – Sciences in Cultural Heritage

The 11th VDR Conservators’ Day takes place from November 26th – 28th, 2020 in Kassel.

The interdisciplinary conference “Looking for TRACES. Finding (HI)STORIES – Sciences in Cultural Heritage“ addresses the complex changes to which cultural heritage from all centuries is intentionally or unintentionally subject. The aim of the conference is to promote an interdisciplinary exchange amongst conservators with different specialties and colleagues from associated disciplines such as art history, natural sciences, prehistoric archaeology, cultural anthropology and architectural history.

To illustrate this topic, abstracts on conservation case studies, art historical research, and analytical projects of all disciplines can be proposed.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the organization team with any questions.
