Submission of ethical questions and dilemmas
The New England Archivists (NEA) Fall 2018 Meeting, "Our Common Code: Ethics in the Archives," will be held at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum in Boston, Massachusetts on October 26, 2018.

We make ethical decisions in our work as archivists, especially towards preserving a fair and inclusive historical record and collective memory. These decisions help shape our professional ethics, and sharing these experiences improves our ethical context. The Fall 2018 Meeting will give archivists and allied professionals an opportunity to discuss archival ethics in three areas: appraisal and acquisitions, description, and access. We are interested in any topic that relates to the three thematic areas of archival ethics. We are particularly interested in proposals that intersect with privacy, social justice, rights of individuals and communities, ethics in the digital age, and displaced archives.

In addition to seeking proposals for presentations that facilitate conversation about archival ethics, the Fall 2018 Program Committee welcomes the submission of ethical questions, scenarios, and dilemmas. These questions may be distributed to attendees to encourage broader conversation, but will not be formally presented.
