Session Description
How can we as archivists create a better future by addressing deficiencies in the collections we steward and in the historic record more broadly? This session invites attendees to imagine that future, discuss the role and power of archivists, and conceptualize resources for work in this area. Originally envisioned as an interactive, in-person session, we are now offering two case studies and a response in the hope of inspiring meaningful conversations in the online Q&A and beyond.
