406 - Archival Bonds: Love and Friendship in the Archives

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

Have you ever developed an emotional connection with a person you met only through the historical record? Having forged unexpected kinships over processing and research tables, the presenters explore this phenomenon in depth. How does the emotional landscape of archival work enrich or thwart our sense of professionalism? Would greater emphasis on emotional connections made through records contribute to archival advocacy? Join us for a lively and poignant discussion.
