This year’s Annual Seminar takes place in the National Portrait Gallery on Tuesday 9 October.

We are welcoming papers for inclusion from museum professionals, portrait researchers, conservators, and academics. Presentations will be twenty minutes in length, and we are looking for new research findings and sources, curatorial case studies and challenges, innovations in collection-based learning, and other inspiring examples which you’d like to share with your peers. Our Annual Seminar deals with any period or medium of portrait production; you can see previous Annual Seminar programmes on our Events page here.

Please send your abstracts (max. 300 words) and a short biographical note (max. 100 words) to Caroline Pegum, Researcher/Co-ordinator (cpegum’at’ before 6pm on Thursday 31 May 2018.

Please note we are normally unable to support international travel for speakers. If you are submitting a paper from beyond the UK, please provide details of any necessary travel and subsistence costs.
