About this Event
Building an Interdisciplinary and Holistic Curriculum on Archival Studies
Join us for a series of presentations that has been specifically created to provide first-hand accounts to students exploring the field of archives and information science. The series will serve as part of a new and innovative course designed to give students hands-on interdisciplinary experience in critical archival studies using materials and resources from the University of Miami Libraries' distinctive collections—introducing them to the fundamentals of archival theory and practice used in libraries, archives, and museums.
This free and online event series is open to the public and will feature talks and discussions led by experts who are actively engaged in Caribbean archival curating, preservation, and theorization.
