About this event

This workshop is designed to facilitate the process for students who are embarking on archival research for the first time—What, for example, are archives or archival materials, and how do you find them? What do you need to do to prepare for working in archival collections? What do you need to do during and after the process of such research? What kind of permissions do you need to seek to use archival materials in your research (published and otherwise)? What are the ends and limits to the uses of archival materials in research projects?

This workshop will allow students to interact with scholars who have used archival materials in crucial ways in their own research, theorized about them and what they mean, and developed material or digital forms of archives, with which other scholars and researchers have come to work. Topics will include "A Start-Up Guide to Working in Archives," ethics in the archives, working with contemporary authors, and working with archival traces.
