February 2 – Introductions

  • What are archives? 
  • How has the pandemic impacted how we do research? How has it impacted what and how we collect artifacts for the future? 

Readings: 

The following brief reading materials are meant to frame our initial discussion as we lay the broad outlines for the course given the current circumstances of the pandemic and establish a shared vocabulary around archives and archival research. You do not need to read the library guides (items 1 & 2) word for word, but take time to familiarize yourself with the concepts introduced.
