◆ NEA/A.R.T. Spring 2018 Meeting: Call for Proposals

New England Archivists (NEA) and the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan New York (A.R.T.) invite submissions of session proposals for our joint Spring Meeting, to be held March 22 - 24, 2018, in New Haven, Connecticut. The deadline for proposals is September 10, 2017.

With the theme “Rise Up,” the Spring 2018 Meeting will focus on concepts of archival advocacy. How can archivists better demonstrate the cultural value and social urgency of their work? What kinds of advocacy can help amplify awareness and bolster support for archival repositories within established institutions? How can best practices evolve to include the stories, traditions, and record-keeping methods of people and communities who are traditionally underrepresented in archival spaces? Sessions, workshops, and plenary speakers will explore the personal, professional, and political implications of archival advocacy, particularly in regard to social justice efforts, economic challenges, activist tactics, and career sustainability for individuals within the archival field. First-time presenters, current graduate students, early-career professionals, and those doing archival work in community-centered contexts are all strongly encouraged to submit proposals.
