Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Responding to Michelle Caswell and Marika Cifor's foundational text From Human Rights to Feminist Ethics: Radical Empathy in Archives, this hybrid lightning talk-facilitated dialogue provides a forum for discussing the ways in which our profession can "center radical empathy and obligations of care." Following brief presentations from speakers, attendees and speakers participate in small-group conversations focused on the application of radical empathy as a theory and practice within their work.
