archival activisms

Not that this is any surprise to any of us who work in archives (and who have read or thought about the structures, histories and purposes of archives), but archives are intensely political spaces. And on top of that, they’ve traditionally been spaces that store material artifacts. What’s going to happen now that more and more stuff is happening in the virtual sphere.

Kelly Wooten, Research Services and Collection Development Librarian for the Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture in the Special Collections Library, and Librarian for Sexuality Studies for Perkins Library at Duke University, talks politics, archives, third wave feminisms and queer activism in “Archives as Activism.” You can also learn about her new co-edited book, Make Your Own History: Documenting Feminist and Queer Activism in the 21st Century.
