Daguerreian Society Call for Papers

Please help us circulate the Daguerreian Society Call for Papers. Through generous donations we are offering awards of $1,000 and $500 for the best papers submitted for publication in the Daguerreian Society Annual. The Daguerreian Society (Daguerre.org) is offering a call for original papers that address and advance the understanding and appreciation of the photographic history of the Daguerreian era (ca 1830 – 1870) in relation to the art, history, collection and practice of the daguerreotype, as well as the history and social impact of other photographic processes of this period. Authors are responsible for rights and releases of images used as illustrations, and grant permission for publication and for future electronic access. Papers of up to 30 pages (~8,000 words) are requested for peer review by renowned Daguerreian expert Keith Davis, Senior Curator of Photography at the Nelson Atkins Museum and the publication committee. The winners will be published in the Daguerreian Society Annual.
