These Are Unprecedented Times: How Archives and Archivists Changed, Struggled and Thrived Through Challenging Periods

The Archives Association of Ontario is pleased to announce its Call for Posters for the 2022 Annual Conference to be held virtually from May 25-27, 2022.

The 2022 Conference Program Committee invites poster proposals broadly connected to the conference theme of “These Are Unprecedented Times.”

We especially welcome and encourage posters by and from archivists who identify as part of minority communities. We also welcome posters from students, new graduates, and emerging archivists, or those archivists associated with under-represented institutions or collections. All individuals who work with archival records are invited to submit a proposal.

Potential subjects for consideration include but are not limited to:

  • Changes to archival work through and post the COVID-19 pandemic or other major upheavals – practical and theoretical;

  • Addressing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the profession and in our collections;

  • Responding to key movements such as Black Lives Matter, Truth and Reconciliation, etc.;

  • Developing better connections and engagement with known and new research communities;

  • Straddling the demands of rapid digital advances and the spectre of technological obsolescence;

  • Other topics related to archival practice will be considered.

Poster proposals should include an abstract of up to 250 words and a biographical note of no more than 100 words for each participant.

Proposals should be submitted to: AAO Office at

Proposals should use the subject line format: AAO2022_Poster_Lastname-Firstname

The due date of proposal submissions is March 31, 2022.

If successful, the presenter(s) will be later required to submit a short video (under 5 minutes) of their poster presentation and be available to attend a live Q&A during the conference.
