During the last week, a few conference calls tumbled into my inbox... so you are getting the digest now.
Today's the last day of the reduced-fee (early bird) registration period for the 8th biennial North American Textile Conservation Conference in Oaxaca, Mexico. Regular Registration (US$325.) will be open from July 1 – Oct 7, 2011.Please visit the conference website www.NATCConference.com for more information on conference papers/posters, accommodations, pre- and post-conference workshops and tours.
On August 6, there will be a tour opportunity called "Fashion at the Getty", with a guided tour through the two fashion exhibitions Paris Life & Luxury and Fashion in the Middle Ages. The registration is possible until July 25, but places are limited and probably gone soon. You can learn more and register via Heather A. Vaughan's blog.
More in my region (well, comparatively speaking) is the 7. Archäologenkongress which will take place in Bremen October 3-7, 2011. The programme (lots of interesting sounding papers and a very nice accompanying programme with excursions), info and registration info can be found on the (German language) homepage, www.nwdv.org. There's also an early bird fee on this one, with the one-week conference ticket (including a public transport pass) for 60 instead of 80 Euros.
Even more conference invitations tomorrow!
