New England Archivists (NEA) and the Archivists Round Table of Metropolitan
New York (A.R.T.) invite submissions of session proposals for our joint
Spring Meeting, to be held March 22 - 24, 2018, in New Haven, Connecticut.
The deadline for proposals is September 10, 2017.

With the theme “Rise Up,” the Spring 2018 Meeting will focus on concepts of
archival advocacy. How can archivists better demonstrate the cultural value
and social urgency of their work? What kinds of advocacy can help amplify
awareness and bolster support for archival repositories within established
institutions? How can best practices evolve to include the stories,
traditions, and record-keeping methods of people and communities who are
traditionally underrepresented in archival spaces? Sessions, workshops, and
plenary speakers will explore the personal, professional, and political
implications of archival advocacy, particularly in regard to social justice
efforts, economic challenges, activist tactics, and career sustainability
for individuals within the archival field. First-time presenters, current
graduate students, early-career professionals, and those doing archival
work in community-centered contexts are all strongly encouraged to submit
proposals.

----



The Spring 2018 Program Committee invites proposals on all topics but is
especially interested in sessions that:



   -

   Share successful tools archivists can use to bolster internal and
   external advocacy efforts within their institutions, among emerging
   communities, and to the general public, including strategies for elevating
   awareness about the value of archival work and special collections
   -

   Explore how intersectionality, allyship, and radical empathy can impact
   all aspects of archival work, particularly collection development,
   arrangement and description, and outreach
   -

   Discuss methods for personal advocacy that archivists can use to build a
   stronger sense of professional agency, develop and advance their ideas
   through clear communication, and foster more equitable, respectful, and
   supportive relationships with colleagues at every level
   -

   Incorporate participatory elements that engage attendees and provide
   actionable knowledge to empower individuals and institutions to adapt their
   practices to be more inclusive, effective, and transparent
   -

   Detail collaborative efforts among archivists, institutions, regional
   organizations, and communities, especially those striving to capture
   ephemeral forms of documentation
   -

   Present cross-disciplinary perspectives on archival work, particularly
   in relation to the development of community archives, political activism,
   skillshares between archivists and non-archivists, and guerrilla archivist
   work done in non-institutional contexts
   -

   Examine how the development, maintenance, and implementation of archival
   descriptive standards can affect concepts of professional neutrality,
   historical representation within the archive, and expanded access to
   materials
   -

   Facilitate conversations surrounding oppressive power structures and the
   ethics of authority with regard to the historical functions of archival
   institutions
   -

   Highlight work being done to address archival silences, especially
   regarding materials related to LGBTQIA, indigenous, and carceral
   communities and in the areas of social justice including racial, labor,
   disability, economic, reproductive health, and climate issues
   -

   Focus on the rich histories of people, movements, and organizations in
   the Connecticut and metropolitan New York City regions
