Speaker Proposals Sought for October Symposium in Houston

May 17, 2024 9:04 PM | David Fondiller (Administrator)

Have a story to tell? Your fellow members want to hear it!

Propose a talk for The Daguerreian Society Symposium, Oct. 17-19 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

Based on member comments from previous Symposiums, there’s interest in a wide range of topics, including:

  • Collections management including appraisals, insurance, conservation, archival storage, cataloguing
  • Pivotal figures in daguerreotypy/19th-century photography
  • Hidden gems/Overlooked collections/Discoveries
  • Market trends:  how values have changed and what’s likely to happen next

Please keep in mind: 

  • All talks must be illustrated with compelling images. Members tend to be visually-oriented people – we’d rather sit through 25 minutes of images without narration than endure a talk of the same length with only a few pictures.
  • Shorter talks will be given preference.
  • You do not need any special credentials – our speakers, like our members, come from all walks of life.

To submit your idea for a Symposium presentation, email a summary, estimated running time, and 3 to 5 sample images to

See you in Houston!
