Archives Month Series

pen and a piece of paper

For the second year in a row I will be working with Nicole Belolan and Kristin O’Brassill-Kulfan to edit an archives month series for the History@Work blog. It was wonderful working with Nicole and Kristin on the 2019 archives series and I’m looking forward to seeing how the series develops this year.

This year’s series will focus on archival and library practice and labor as well as archives and libraries as public history. Because the COVID-19 crisis has highlighted new challenges surrounding the use and maintenance of archives, the series also welcome pitches from users of archives. 

Pitches are due July 10th and you can see the full CFP here.

Archives Month Series on History@Work

Filing cabinets with archival material.

Over the past couple of months I have been working with  History@Work affiliate editor Kristin O’Brassill-Kulfan, and NCPH The Public Historian co-editor/Digital Media Editor Nicole Belolan to help pull together a month long series of posts about of archives and public history.

This series will be published throughout October (Archives Month in the United States). I’m super excited to see these posts go live as they discuss a huge range of archival work, public history work, and community center history making.

The first post in the series, “Fearless Education: Quaker values, collaboration, and democratized access at Haverford College Quaker & Special Collections” by Liz Jones-Minsinger went live this morning. Go read it and keep an eye out for new posts throughout October.
