Archives Week 2020 - Digital Surveillance, Privacy, and Preservation in Community-based Archives

  • Thursday, October 22, 2020
  • 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
  • Online

A conversation and interactive workshop considering the ethics of digital archiving, with Steven Booth & Stacie Williams, Marika Cifor, Yo-Yo Lin & J Soto, and Yvette Ramírez, moderated by Tracy Fenix.

In this interactive program, archivists and audience members will critically examine how concerns around surveillance and privacy intersect with archival practices, and discuss how living, community-based digital archives can build caring policies that best serve BIPOC and marginalized communities.

The event will begin with a panel discussion, followed by breakout sessions where attendees will be invited to collectively reimagine and rescript digital preservation policies for the Visual AIDS' Artist+ Registry.
