New podcast episode! This episode was inspired by Colleen Burgess’ and Thomas Peace’s recent Active History post “19th Century Legacies in 21st Century Historical Research Practice.” Using their work as a jumping off point I talk about descriptive practices within in archives and museums and discuss standard vocabularies, hegemony, and the challenges of organizational schemes.
Mentioned in this episode:
- 19th Century Legacies in 21st Century Historical Research Practice by Colleen Burgess and Thomas Peace.
- Confronting Our Failures of Care Around the Legacies of Marginalized People in the Archives by Bergis Jules.
- RadTech Meets RadArch: Towards A New Principle for Archives an Archival Description by Jarrett M. Drake
