In order to finalize the panel, we are looking for abstracts of papers of not more than 250 words addressing themes including (but not limited to):
- Collection practices in former colonial empires
- Digitization of natural history collections (opportunities and challenges for historiography)
- Violence and natural history collections
- Decolonizing collections
Please submit your abstracts (max 250 words) together with a short bio and institutional affiliations to the conveners Dr. Andreas Weber (University of Twente) and Dr. Fenneke Sysling (firstname.lastname@example.org).
