SECOND CALL FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS

To our friends interested in cultural heritage media:

We invite you once more to submit your abstracts for the 2019 edition of The Archaeology Channel (TAC) Conference on Cultural Heritage Media, which will take place 2 - 4 May 2019, at the Hilton Eugene and Conference Center, Eugene, Oregon, as part of The Archaeology Channel International Film Festival. See details on our Conference page at archaeologychannel.org/conference and on our Festival page at archaeologychannel.org/festival.

A central activity at the Conference is the exchange of ideas through formal presentations, symposia and forums.  We encourage participation in this manner from all quarters.  The Conference is an opportunity for you to share your perspectives on the uses of audiovisual media for the study, preservation, and promotion of cultural heritage.  Your contribution will further the development of cultural heritage media as a strong and positive influence for people everywhere.

At this point, we are aware of three symposia being proposed for the Conference, on these topics: the search for Amelia Earhart, indigenous media, and archaeology podcasts. Please let us know if you are considering presentations on these topics or prefer to present independently of a symposium.

Please share this announcement with others you know who may have an interest. Many thanks and best wishes to you all.
