AI and Archives: Explorations, Possibilities and Challenges 27-28 April 2022

Full Stack Feminism is delighted to be collaborating with Women in Focus and The Sussex Humanities Lab on this timely symposium AI and Archives: Explorations, Possibilities and Challenges. The symposium aims to explore the possibilities and challenges afforded by AI in archives, and does so specifically from an intersectional, eco, feminist perspective. The purpose of the symposium is to share interest in, knowledge of and concerns with AI systems in archives and archival practices. We see this event as an opportunity to engage in conversation and to support further formal and informal networking and collaboration. We are therefore launching a call for papers and welcome the perspectives and experiences of scholars, technologists, archivists, and practitioners. 

The CFP includes, but is not limited to the following subject areas: Computer vision and archival cataloguing; feminisation of archival labour and automation; AI and machine learning in archival workflows; are AI curated archives possible/desirable; creativity and AI in archives; AI and audio-visual classification and search; AI and searchability; AI solutions to archival silence/gaps; radical possibilities afforded by AI tools; case studies of experiments and tests using AI in archives.

The symposium will take place at the Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex, UK, April 27th – 28th and will be a hybrid event. The CFP is now open and closes on Monday 9th January 2023 3.00 GMT.
