This workshop will include short presentations by a panel of experts and JOTPY partners, such as UTSA historian Jerry Gonzalez, UW Eau Claire Historian Cheryl Jimenez-Frei, JOTPY Intern Carolyn Evans, Rochester Institute of Technology Museum Studies Director Juilee Decker, ASU sustainability scholar Denise Bates, and Rev. Shonda Nicole Gladden whose work on underrepresented groups exposes silences in the archive and within the Covid-19 pandemic more generally. Discussion and Q&A will follow. This is a great opportunity for educational communities to discuss how Covid-related social issues are magnified and replicated by community collection and curation.
