Save the Date: ICOM NATHIST 2018

Hoopoe 2018 announcment

The major natural history collections of the Land of Israel are housed at Jerusalem and Tel Aviv universities. These collections document the natural heritage legacy of our region during the past hundred years, the fossil record in the Levant, and the development of humankind and its environment in the Middle East.

In November 2018, ICOM Israel and the Steinhardt Museum of Natural History, Tel Aviv University, will host the ICOM NATHIST 2018 conference and annual meeting. The Steinhardt Museum of Natural History has been inaugurated in 2017 as the natural-level institution to portray and promote awareness of the natural heritage of Israel and adjacent regions.

Steinhardt_Building.jpgThe motto of the 2018 conference will be Natural History Museums in Time and Place. Topics of discussion will cover the best curatorial practices in museum collections and new research techniques, emerging fields such as biomimicry and new education and entertainment approaches to increase engagement with our target audiences.

Conference Highlights:

  • Keynote speakers
  • Stimulating presentations
  • Exploring the brand new Steinhardt Museum of Natural History
  • Local trips of interest and a visit to Jerusalem
  • Post-conference tour to the Dead Sea area

A call for papers will follow shortly, along with detailed information on the event. Sign up for ICOM NATHIST 2018 updates on: smnh.tau.ac.il/NATHIST2018
