Open Forums: Advocacy: The Georgia Archives Experience
Four years ago, news of the impending closure of the Georgia Archives galvanized the profession and local, state, and national organizations mobilized their resources to mitigate this worst-case scenario. Join us for an interactive discussion with activists in the “counter-closure movement” who will share their perspectives on how the profession was able to roll back this decision. We’ll explore what worked well, what tactics were less successful, and how SAA and CoSA – as member-driven organizations – can best respond to future public policy challenges.

Open Forums: SAA Diversity Committee
The Right to Dis-Remember: Contested Spaces of Memory through Public History and Archives

The removal of the Confederate flag from the South Carolina State House and public statutes and the recent renaming of college dormitories on campuses highlight the complex ways in which monuments and memorials frame public history. Panelists discuss the various ways in which different stakeholders (e.g., public and city officials, public and private institutions, and archives) craft public memorials for very different purposes and how diverse (and often marginalized) communities often craft counter narratives to the ways historical events and places are publicly celebrated. (Sponsored by the SAA Diversity Committee; panelists to be announced.)
