CFP: AAMG Virtual Conference, “Belong,” Deadline Nov, 21, 2023!

Published October 31, 2023

Association of Academic Museums & Galleries 2024 Annual Conference


All Virtual 

Deadline to apply: November 21, 2023



AAMG 2024: belong centers upon belonging and is presented entirely online, in the spirit of inclusion. Academic museums and galleries consider belonging from many angles unique to the field, but above all else belonging is a shared value—for our relationships with students, faculty, and our local and regional communities as well as our relationships with each other as an AAMG community.


Some questions to start (but not limit!) your proposal:

  • How does my museum support belonging within my higher educational institution via its teaching, programming, exhibitions, acquisitions, publications, staffing, funding allocations, and so on?
  • What do I do as a museum staff member and/or AAMG member to support student belonging and social and academic relationship-building?
  • How can museums and galleries help solve the challenges facing higher education, perhaps through the comparative nimbleness of our spaces and programs to react, respond, and innovate as opportunities arise?
  • We’ve added two new proposal types for AAMG 2024: belong. Facilitated roundtable discussions and problem-solving workshops to create more opportunities for conversation and the exchange of ideas.


Required Materials;

  • Contact and institutional affiliation for all presenters including bios (up to 150 words)
  • Confirm that if submission is accepted you and all speakers will register and pay for conference registration. Discount codes will be provided for speakers.
  • Only AAMG members can submit proposals. AAMG members may sponsor a non-member presenter that is affiliated with the topic.
