March 1-3, 2018

Check the symposium  schedule for specific times and locations.

Featuring talks by:

  • Trudy Huskamp Peterson who consulted with the truth commissions in South Africa and Honduras, and worked with the police archives in Guatemala
  • William S. Pretzer, Senior Curator for History at the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of African American History and Culture
  • Bethany Wiggin, one of the lead scientists in international "guerrilla archiving" of federal climate change data
  • William Morrison, whose films use the poetic and aesthetic potential of dying nitrate film, creating a powerful mediation upon death, memory, and media

In this symposium and linked events, practicing archivists, engaged scholars, and interdisciplinary artists will share projects from guerrilla archiving of climate data to mining corporate records for evidence of organized violence. Join us for three days of lectures, panels, film screenings, and exhibits.

All events are free and open to public.
