Research, records and responsibility (RRR): Ten years of the Pacific and Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures (PARADISEC)

The conference celebrating ten years of PARADISEC from 2-4 December 2013 engaged musicologists, linguists, and archivists from India, Hong Kong, Poland, Canada, Alaska, Hawai’i, Australia, the UK and Russia in reflections on building records of the world’s languages and cultures. The presentations covered a wide range of topics from community-driven archive projects, the uses of archived materials in current research and community contexts, the national and international sharing of data and metadata to tools for linguistic documentation and a panel discussion of what work still remains to be done. The keynote presenters were Shubha Chaudhuri from the Archives and Research Centre for Ethnomusicology at the American Institute of Indian Studies, Gurgaon, India and Alexandre Arkhipov from Moscow State University. This conference and the PARADISEC project were made possible by grants from the Australian Research Council. We also gratefully acknowledge support from the Faculty of Arts at the University of Melbourne, and from PARADISEC, Sydney Conservatorium of Music, University of Sydney
