Project STAND and the AUC Robert Woodruff Library will host a one-week virtual residency on September 13-17. The residency will invite six individuals to serve in a cohort to create an online educational resource as part of an Archiving Student Activism toolkit. The cohort aims to include a cross-section of information professionals, memory workers, scholars, professors, historians, and others interested in the ethical documentation of student activism in marginalized communities. A cohort of six will focus on building an educational resource geared toward building an ecosystem of care, including knowledge sharing and collaborative learning between a network of information professionals who have expressed an interest and commitment to ethically engaging with student organizers. The theme for our first residency is: Archiving in Black: Student Organizing at HBCU’s and Cross-Cultural Movements. The residency will center the voices of members from HBCUs. HBCUs have a series of unique opportunities and challenges regarding documenting student organizers that will be explored. However, this residency will unpack themes that are widely applicable to the BIPOC community. We look forward to welcoming a cohort that will add to the richness of our conversations!
