503 - Intersectionality in Identity-Focused Archives

Lightning talks focus on the complicated labor of making women's archival collections--and other identity-focused collections--more inclusive across the spectrum of gender, race, sexuality, and other markers of identity. Speakers share their personal experiences working with collections that focus on individuals and communities whose stories historically have been marginalized from the archival record.
