Join us for the opening of the DLF Liberal Arts Colleges Pre-Conference, featuring welcoming remarks by Franny Gaede, Chelcie Rowell, and Bethany Nowviskie as well as a keynote talk on “the role of college and university archives in documenting and dialoguing dissent student activism on campus,” by Jarrett Drake.

Keynote- Jarrett Drake: "Documenting Dissent in the Contemporary College Archive"

College and university archivists have a duty to document the whole of their campus communities, including and especially the activities of students combatting racism and other forms of oppression and discrimination within the institution. In these cases, college and university archivists must reject notions of neutrality and instead decide to document dissenting voices ethically, responsibly, and critically but do so with an explicitly anti-oppressive and radically inclusive approach to appraisal and description.

 This talk will argue that documenting dissent amongst the student body offers college and university archivists an opportunity to revisit, revamp, and refine their missions within institutions of higher learning.
