The second meeting of the Network for Experimental Media Archaeology will take place in the Dana Research Centre at the Science Museum in London on Thursday morning February 11, 2016 between 9 am and 1 am.

Dr Tim Boon, hosting the meeting as Head of Research & Public History in the Science Museum, will open the meeting.

The meeting will follow up on the "Hands-on Media History" conference organised by John Ellis and Nick Hall from Royal Holloway College on February 8-10 ; see

As the network springs from a close collaboration between universities, (technology) museums and (film and) media archives envisioning innovate research and curating practices on apparatus collections, the meeting’s first aim is to present ongoing hands-on research in the field of experimental media archaeology; to think about the collaboration between media scholars and cultural heritage institutions in doing hands-on experiments and re-enactment; to discuss combined applications to facilitate university / museum collaborations; and to plan further activities.

We are very much looking forward to seeing you in London!

Andreas Fickers & Annie van den Oever
