Participatory Digital Archiving and Academic-Community Collaboration Online
Presenter: Chris Mele, Department of Sociology
Participatory digital archiving empowers historically silenced communities to create, own, and maintain a sustainable repository of local knowledge, thereby challenging conventions of institutional authority and expertise. Based on research for Documenting Chester, this presentation explores the practical dimensions of post-custodial digital archiving, including the collapse of a division of labor between content producers and archivists, and technology and democratizing archival practices. It asks what constitutes meaningful collaboration between academic researchers and community members.
This presentation is online only.
