504 - Archives and Institutional Power: A Critical Perspective

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Archivists have been comfortable challenging corporate archives' support of institutional power while government, academic, and religious archives have escaped that scrutiny. This interactive discussion challenges us to consider a new perspective: That archivists can make change through negotiating their relationship with and support of institutional power, and that no archives is free from this interplay. Participants should arrive equipped with an SMS text-messaging-capable device and be familiar with three pre-readings, available via Sched.org.
