Conference Papers, Notes and Talks

Collection Creator:
Karp, Ivan  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Scope and Contents:
This folder contains a set of files from some of Karp's more recent presentations, starting in 2006. Only two of them became published papers of some sort. The files "cape town paper" and "MuseumFrictions.AFRICOM2006" are two slightly different versions of Karp and Kratz's paper for the AFRICOM conference in Cape Town. The paper was based on the introductions to Museum Frictions. The file "Karp ethics of partnership talk.doc" is a presentation that Karp gave at a conference held in Cape Town organized by Emory's Institute for Developing Nations in October 2007 on research partnerships and collaborations. He likely first developed and presented it for a previous occasion at Emory since the file is dated May 2007. The file "EMEA board presentation.wpd" is from the same Cape Town conference. Karp gave a presentation to Emory's international advisory board (Europe, Middle East, Africa). The file "Skidmore Conference Notes.wpd" were for a presentation he gave during a visit around the opening of the Tang Museum at Skidmore called "Transformation in the College Museum." Some of the material in the presentation draws on other papers. The file "Chicago Conference.doc" contains the notes that Karp used for his last conference presentation, which was in June 2011 in Chicago. Kratz developed these notes and a transcription of Karp's presentation into the paper "Collecting, Exhibiting, and Interpreting: Museums as Midwives and Mediators of Meaning," published in Museum Anthropology in 2014 as part of a special issue of papers from the symposium "Collecting Contemporary Urban Materials for the Museum Visitor of the 22nd Century." See also files in the folder "Project and paper notes" which relate to projects Karp was thinking about and working on in his last several years. He had duplicates of several files in this folder there as well.
Collection Restrictions:
Recommendations that Karp wrote for his colleagues and students are restricted until 2061.

Access to the Ivan Karp papers requires an appointment.
