Islamic Architecture in Africa

Dear colleagues, 

I am the Archnet Content Manager and Interim Program Head of the Aga Khan Documentation Center, MIT LIbraries (AKDC@MIT https://libraries.mit.edu/akdc/).  We are seeking to improve and augement Archnet's coverage of issues relating to architecture, urbanism, environmental and landscape design, visual culture, art history, and conservation of culturally significant architecture in Africa, particuarly within the context of Muslim societies. 

Collecting US Cannabis/Marijuana History

I am the president/chair of the nonprofit, all-volunteer organization 420 Archive. We are working with communities to collect the oral histories and documentation surrounding US cannabis/marijuana history and culture. 

After conducting a two-year, comprehensive needs assessment, it was clear that US marijuana history was on the edge of being lost. At the time of the needs assessment, no academically driven, archive-quality oral histories and documentation on marijuana farming, production, or activists' attempts to repeal laws had been collected. 

Now available online at the Archives of American Art- Smithsonian Institution, December 2018
