    Hi all!

    *NewYorkScapes is excited to invite proposals for the 2022 Culture Mapping
    symposium, our annual conference exploring the intersection of culture,
    place, and digital methods.* This year’s conference — guided by the theme
    “Archives & Afterlives” — will take place mostly virtually with in-person
    components (public health guidance permitting) at NYU’s Washington Square

    Culture Mapping 2022 seeks to assemble scholars, students, archivists and
    information managers, artists, activists, and other practitioners to
    reflect on the use of archival materials in understanding the information
    practices that encode and normalize injustice.

    What roles can archives play in not only the study of historical events,
    but in learning and teaching the legacies of information and recordkeeping?
    We ask: How can historical “archives,” loosely construed, illuminate the
    entanglement of rhetorical and material violence and information storage,
    processing, and retrieval? What role do archival materials play in
    information pedagogy in the humanities and social sciences? How does the
    transformation of archival materials into digital information present or
    foreclose opportunities for justice-oriented praxis?

    Proposals may engage critical, practical, and historical takes on these
    questions, regardless of discipline. Faculty, librarians, graduate and
    undergraduate students, staff and administrators, and community members are
    all encouraged to participate. Feel free to distribute widely!

    *Deadline for submissions is February 15, 2022.*

    *Read the full CFP and submit a proposal here.
