    2022 Universeum annual conference

    University museums and collections in the vanguard of contemporary societal debates

    Universeum annual conference will be held in Belgium from the 5th to the 8th of July 2022. 

    The Université Libre de Bruxelles and KU Leuven, host of the conference, are working hard to organise a rich programme that will include visits to Mons and Gent. Regarding the current situation they agreed to plan the possibility of a hybrid participation to the sessions.

    This main theme echoed the last 2021 UMAC-UNIVERSEUM joint online conference during which many issues were raised and discussed by the community.

    During the 2022 Universeum Annual Conference in Belgium, organizers and the community would like to continue this debate and focus it specifically in relation to university museums (U-museums) and collections.

    You will find the entire development of the theme and the sub-themes associated in the call for paper as well as the template of your abstract on the website.


    You are welcome to contribute to this collective reflection and submit your abstract to the universeum2022@ulb.be using the abstract template from the website by Friday 15 February 2022.
