Different Types of Research Using Ephemera

I plan to attend. I am interested in the myriad ways it is possible to study, present, archive/store and “translate” cultural ephemera. Given that my research makes use of ads in National Geographic Magazine (NGM), which as I understand it, are not even included on the CD-Rom’s that the National Geographic Society sells each year. One never knows where inspiration may strike. Cavorting with like-minds seems EXACTLY the place to be for me.
