Conference paper: 'Archiving affectively'

Today I presented a paper (co-authored with Alison Huber) at the "Popular Music Heritage, Cultural Memory and Cultural Identity" (POPID) conference in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

The paper, titled 'Archiving affectively: practicing DIY heritage in volunteer-run popular music archives and museums', drew on interviews and fieldwork at the Australian Country Music Hall of Fame in Tamworth, New South Wales, that was undertaken for the Popular Music and Cultural Memory project (2010-12).

Here's a photo of me (on the left) giving the paper in the plenary session chaired by Professor Susanne Janssen (on the right).
