British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

cfp: Snapshot in Time / deadline 1 September 2021

Scottish Transport & Industry Collections Knowledge Network (STICK) is inviting submissions for papers for its 2021 conference – 'Snapshot in Time' – to discuss the importance of photography as a documentation and advocacy tool for industrial and transport heritage. The conference is scheduled for Wednesday 17 November 2021.

Photography is an invaluable tool for recording industrial and transport history – it is ideally suited for rapid documentation in a world where dramatic or catastrophic change can occur to the fabric of industry, almost overnight, and revolutionised the documentation of historic sites. 

Papers for presentation will be accepted on a broad range of subjects, including:

  • Case studies in photographic survey
  • The use of photographs for education, outreach and advocacy
  • The research utility of existing archives of photographic material
  • Developments in photographic survey techniques and their future (e.g. photogrammetry)

STICK anticipates the conference to be hosted online via zoom. 

STICK would welcome 200-word submissions from academics, enthusiasts and heritage professionals for talks of 45 minutes. Proposals may be submitted to Matthew Bellhouse Moran at matthew@hmsunicorn.org.uk with “STICK Conference Proposal” as the email title.
