In light of current debates about historic record (Who decides? What qualifies? Whose story does it tell?) this symposium will reach out to colleagues working in archives and special collections to reflect on the urgent ethical challenges confronting their repositories around collection building past and present, including description; provenance; repatriation; monetization; the right to be forgotten; and post-custodial/post-colonial archives and print collections.

This event will be held online, via Zoom. Zoom link will be emailed to registrants 1-2 days before the event.

This event is free and open to the public. If you are registering from outside of the Penn community, please select "Other" in the "Penn role/s" checkbox. For questions or for further information: email kislak@pobox.upenn.edu
