Scroll is a journal supported by the Student Conservators at Melbourne (SC@M) at the Grimwade Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation, University of Melbourne. It is a platform for emerging professionals from various disciplines to share their ideas, projects and passions in the area of cultural materials conservation.
We are looking for content to fit in the following categories:
[ essays ]
These could be opinion pieces, critiques, research, or random musings. Maybe something could be pulled together by re-working an assignment, or fleshing out an idea that was outside the scope of an assignment.
[ creative ]
Creative writing, illustrations and images, satire … all forms considered.
[ reviews ]
Books, articles, journals, workshops, exhibitions, webinars, conferences—anything that’s caught your attention as inspiring or important, or in need of critiquing.
[ interviews ]
These could be conducted for the purpose of publication, such as directing questions at a conservator or artist in order to understand and record their processes and techniques.
[ reports ]
Formalise the ideas and results of a personal project or treatment with a report, or create a report or summary of a conference or webinar.
