404 - Preserving the Spark: Challenges in Archiving Activist Movements

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

In recent years archivists have struggled to document the work of activists in their communities. Working together in small groups, session participants are able to grapple with questions and create solutions to more effectively document the historical record of social movements and communities. By exploring our shared experience, we hope to move the profession forward in its documentation of often-marginalized activists' work.
