On behalf of the Advisory Board, we would like to inform you of the:
THIRD INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE INCLUSIVE MUSEUM
Yildiz Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey
29 June to 2 July 2010
Istanbul is Turkey's most populous city, and its cultural and financial hub.
Located in the center of the Old World, Istanbul is one of the world's great
cities famous for its historical monuments and scenic beauties. The only
city in the world which spreads over two continents, Istanbul lies at a
point where Asia and Europe are separated by the Bosphorus Strait. With its
history intertwined into the stories of many empires, Istanbul offers a
wealth of historic places, many of which have been added to the UNESCO World
At this time of fundamental social change, what is the role of the museum,
both as a creature of that change, and perhaps also as an agent of change?
The International Conference on the Inclusive Museum is a place where museum
practioners, researchers, thinkers and teachers can engage in discussion on
the historic character and future shape of the museum. The key question of
the Conference is 'How can the institution of the museum become more
The Conference includes plenary presentations by accomplished researchers,
scholars and practitioners, as well as numerous paper, workshop and
colloquium presentations. Presenters may choose to submit written papers for
publication in The International Journal of the Inclusive Museum. If you are
unable to attend the Conference in person, virtual registrations are also
available which allow you to submit a paper for possible publication in this
fully refereed academic Journal.
Whether you are a virtual or in-person presenter at this Conference, we also
encourage you to present on the Conference YouTube Channel. Please select
the Online Sessions link on the conference website for further details.
The deadline for the next round in the call for papers (a title and short
abstract) is 10 September 2009. Future deadlines will be announced on the
Conference website after this date. Proposals are reviewed within two weeks
of submission. Full details of the Conference, including an online proposal
submission form, are to be found at the Conference website -
We look forward to receiving your proposal and hope you will be able to join
us in Istanbul in July 2010.
