Here’s another great event, reposted from the blog of the Student Chapter of the Society of American Archivists here at UNC-CH:
What: Diversifying the Archives: Opportunities and Challenges in Representing Underrepresented Populations
When: November 7th, 2011 at 5:30pm
Where: Manning 307
“Please join us for a very special evening with an excellent panel of insightful and inspirational area archivists as they share some of the challenges and opportunities of collecting archival materials for underrepresented populations, including those who may not have produced traditional documents. Come learn about some of their outreach activities with the local African American community, and bring your questions and reflections.
- Dr. L Teresa Church, Independent Archival Consultant based in Durham, North Carolina
- Holly Smith, African American Materials Specialist at the Southern Historical Collection, UNC-CH Wilson Library
- Jennifer Thompson, Research Services and Collection Development Librarian at the John Hope Franklin Research Center, Duke University
We will provide food, provocative thoughts, and even an event that can count toward your SILS Diversity Advocate Certificate.” QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS EVENT MAY BE DIRECTED TO ANY OF THE UNC-CH SCOSAA OFFICERS.
