Historical Reminiscents EP 06: Demystifying Archival Labour – Arrangement

New podcast episode!

In part two of the mini-series on “Demystifying Archival Labour” I tackle the work of archival arrangement and talk about how archives are organized, archival arrangement principles and how to teach about arrangement in the classroom. I also discuss the idea of alternative arrangements as a means of shifting away from colonial perspectives.  Missed part one of this series? Listen to it here.
