SESSION 201- 'Mind Your Own F#@king Business': Documenting Communities that Don't Want to Be Documented and the Diversity of the American Record

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Archivists continue to seek new ways to diversify the American record. This session uses a pecha kucha format to investigate documenting communities that resist documentation efforts. Six presentations investigate the rationale behind documenting communities, how it is (or could be) done, and the balance between the desire for communities to remain unrecorded and the desire for a complete American record.  The presenters cover decolonizing copyright, graffiti art culture, the “right to forget” movement and anonymity, domestic terrorists, LGBT activists and business owners, polygamists, and law enforcement officers.
