Curating Collections - Forum

The University of Illinois will hold four geographically distributed symposia for archival repositories to address documenting student activism related to historically marginalized communities. The project will build on the existing Project STAND (Student Activism Now Documented) partnership, a consortium of over forty colleges and universities. The symposia will bring together archivists, technologists, educators, and activists, and will be live-streamed and recorded for remote participants. It will result in the development of educational resources for curating activism archives, a white paper outlining next steps, and a broader network of collaborators for the STAND network.
