Help needed: pre-1927 sounds and images of black people in Europe

URGENT Call for help.

Many artefacts may be lost forever, but this effort is to trace and analyze the surviving evidence, and re-issue them all. Please check our comprehensive wants list at -

41st Annual IASA Conference: call for papers

Together for a sound vision

2- 6 November, Philadelphia, USA

The sound, audiovisual and moving image collections of the world have grown in response to the varied needs of their collectors, creators and users, and reflect the diversity of their owners, curators and managers. There is much about these sound and moving image archives that is unique and specific only to those formats or collections. However, there is an even greater range of issues and concerns that all share in common, where convergence is a possibility, standards are communicated and mutual solutions are shared. This conference will be a forum to investigate and discuss all these issues, and many more besides.
