Vorschau

Archives in Context: Season 4

The Society of American Archivists (SAA) is delighted to present Season 4 of Archives in Context, a podcast highlighting archival literature and technologies, and most importantly, the people behind them. Cosponsored by SAA’s Publications Board, American Archivist Editorial Board, and Committee on Public Awareness, the podcast explores the often moving and important work of memory-keeping.

In Season 4, released August 2020, hosts Chris Burns, Ashley Levine, Nicole Milano, and Anna Trammell interview authors, editors, and educators who have developed new tools and resources for implementing archival practices that are ethical, accessible, and inclusive and who are expanding the conversation on leadership, preservation, and community. Listen to interviews with

  • Lae’l Hughes-Watkins and Tamar Chute on the influential Project STAND (Student Activism Now Documented);
  • Lydia Tang on her collaborative work to revise the Guidelines for Accessible Archives for People with Disabilities;
  • Ashley Farmer on her viral essay “Archiving While Black;”
  • Trevor Owens on his award-winning book The Theory and Craft of Digital Preservation;
  • Liza Posas on the workbook she is developing for the Protocols for Native American Archival Materials;
  • Jennifer Johnson on her contribution to Leading and Managing Archives and Manuscripts Programs, volume 1 in SAA’s Archival Fundamentals Series III; and
  • Courtney Dean and Grace Danico on Acid Free, the online magazine of the Los Angeles Archivists Collective.

Production coordinated by Bethany Anderson and Colleen McFarland Rademaker. Listen to the full season now via the Archives in Context websiteGoogle PlaySpotify, and iTunes.
