Call for Papers: The Caring Museum
11/17/2014
Proposed Book

Call for Papers: The Caring Museum

We're delighted to announce that we'll be publishing The Caring Museum next year, under the editorship of Hamish Robertson, and now invite international proposals for papers to be included. Proposals should be submitted by Monday 17 November 2014.

Population ageing is now a recognised demographic process that is leading to major social change globally. The populations of many countries are ageing rapidly and the composition of those populations is shifting upwards - growth is quickest in the oldest age groups. Museums and galleries are increasingly becoming aware of the changes which will affect them as a result.

The focus of thinking to date, however, has very largely been on inclusion, on access and on disability provision. However, older people are not only users of museum services. They are also contributors to them. The Caring Museum will focus particularly on the many ways in which the involvement of older people can contribute to the development and growth of museums, through innovative programmes and bold new thinking.

Purpose

The book aims to explore current and developmental issues in the field of museums and ageing, with a clear emphasis on the emerging and innovative opportunities which ageing populations present. We are particularly seeking contributions which explore practice-based, research-oriented and conceptual themes.

Editor

The Caring Museum will be edited by Hamish Robertson. A geographer by training, he has a unique blend of experience in health, ageing and cultural heritage work, having undertaken more than a decade’s research with the Ageing Research Centre, in addition to both visitor research and multicultural diversity research for the Australia Council.

Submissions

We welcome international proposals for both chapters and case studies from museum professionals, academics and researchers. Proposals from those with practical experience of evaluating and assessing outcomes in this field are particularly welcome, as are contributions which detail practical experience of innovative programmes, or present the research results of the impact of museum initiatives.

Submissions should focus on one of two key areas:

The contributions older people can make to the development, growth and value of museums and galleries.

The value and benefits museums and galleries can contribute to society in an aging world.

Specific aspects of interest include - but are not limited to - the following:

1. The benefits of older people’s involvement in the following aspects of museum work:

Collection development

Conservation or restoration

Fundraising and development

Income generation

Marketing

Membership programmes

Oral and cultural memory

Outreach

Research

Skills and knowledge transfer

Staff development

Travel programmes

Volunteering

2. The potential social contribution of museums in an ageing world:

Political and policy inputs and impacts

The demography of ageing

Advocacy and leadership development

Globalised communities - ageing, family networks and migration

Submitting a proposal

If you are interested in being considered as a contributor, please submit a proposal and a short biography (using Microsoft Word). Proposals should be 300-500 words in length and biographies 100-200 words.

You can propose to submit either a chapter or a case study. Chapters will be 4000-6000 words in length. Case studies will be 1000-2000 words. Please prepare your proposal with these parameters in mind. The work should not have been published elsewhere. All contributions must be submitted in English - translation services will not be provided.

The Editor will be happy to assist with collaborator suggestions and contacts in order to facilitate collaborative submissions. Enquiries concerning this should be sent to the Editor as soon as possible and well in advance of the abstract submission deadline.

The deadline for proposals is Monday 17 November 2014. Please email your proposal to both the editor [thecaringmuseum@gmail.com] and the publishers [proposals@museumsetc.com]. If you have any contribution queries meantime, please email the editor, Hamish Robertson.

The Caring Museum will be published in print and digital editions by MuseumsEtc in 2015. Contributors will receive a complimentary copy of the publication and a discount on more.

Call for Papers for on the Topic of Dry Eye Disease for Optometry and Vision Science

Submission window: August 1, 2014 to February 1, 2015

Publication July/August 2015.

Dry eye is one of the most frequently encountered ocular disorders that affect millions of people worldwide, and dry-eye symptoms are among the most common reasons for patients to visit eye-care professionals. In the past decade, there has been a noticeable increase in interest and attempts to elucidate underlying mechanisms of dry eye. Perhaps the most publicized efforts have come from two reports: International Dry Eye Workshop (2007) and International Workshop on Meibomian Gland Dysfunction (2011).1-2 The field has attracted considerable research interest since these landmark reports, and there have been changes and advances in our understanding of this enigmatic ocular condition in the past 5 years.

Optometry and Vision Science (OVS) intends to bring recent study results and clinical perspectives together in a single publication in 2015, with an esteemed team of guest editors (Penny A. Asbell, Todd P. Margolis, Nancy A. McNamara, Jason J. Nichols, Kelly K. Nichols, and Kenneth A. Polse, with Meng C. Lin as the lead guest editor). We anticipate that there will be great interest in this publication among clinicians and both basic and clinical scientists.

Among the topics of interest:

• Definitions of dry eye and changes in recent years

• Natural history of dry eye

• Mechanisms of tear-film stability and dry eye

• Effects of contact lenses on ocular surface integrity and dry eye

• Genetic and environmental factors in dry eye

• Dysfunctional corneal pain system and dry eye

• Sjögren Syndrome: dry eye and beyond

• Aqueous deficiency and evaporation, and mebomian gland dysfunction as mechanisms in dry eye

• Recent breakthroughs in dry-eye diagnosis, management, and treatment

• Post DEWS (2007)1 and Meibomian Gland Workshop (2011)2 advances in understanding dry eye

• Systemic and ocular drug impacts with the ocular surface that produce dry eyes
