Event description: 

Happening Thursday, November 9, 1–5pm and Friday, November 10, 9am–3:30pm, “What is a Colonial Archive?” is a two-day participatory symposium centered on the challenges of collecting, stewarding, displaying, researching in, and teaching with materials entangled with colonialism’s myriad histories. Bringing together collections experts and scholars from around the world, we explore the ways in which we can reckon with ethical and practical dilemmas in working with materials whose preservation, loss, and ongoing relevance are tied to historic and current imperial agendas as well as new collaborations being forged across institutions, disciplines, and nations.
