The 14th International Conference on the Inclusive Museum, Museum of Lisbon, Lisbon, Portugal is inviting conference proposals.  The 2021 special focus is Museums and Historical Urban Landscapes.  The conference will be held September 8-10, 2021.

The Inclusive Museum Research Network (IMRN) is brought together by a shared concern for the future role of the museum and how it can become more inclusive. The IMRN seeks to build an epistemic community where linkages can be made across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. As a Research Network, IMRN is defined by specific scopes and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by shared themes and tensions.

The conference will center around three main subject areas:

  • Visitors--On the relation of museum to its communities of users;
  • Collections--On the practices and processes of collecting and curating;
  • Representations--On museums as repositories and communicators of culture and knowledge.

For more detailed information about these themes and potential topics, visit the conference's theme page.
