Hi Dr Heath,
I'm contacting the list with some queries relating to accessing the National Archives of India (NAI), in Delhi, that I hope fellow list members can help with:
I am trying to locate archives for committees of the Croix-Rouge française / Association des dames françaises that were established in French colonies, particularly French West Africa. If anyone has any insight about where colonial-era documents from overseas committees might be held (France, Geneva, or elsewhere), please email me at email@example.com.

Archiving activism in the digital age

The H2020 ITHACA project focuses on narratives of migration in both past and present, analysing them in a rigorous historical framework, through an interdisciplinary, comparative, and transnational approach.
The ACHA recently announced the award of a $75,000 grant furnished by the American Historical Association and the National Endowment for the Humanities (https://achahistory.org/2022/04/07/acha-receives-neh-sharp-grant-for-native-boarding-schools-historical-research-and-catholic-archives/).
Overdue Conversations is a podcast about the ways archives inform our discussions around history, literature, and politics. From digital publishing to reparative justice, climate change to public health, this series of overdue conversations takes archival documents out of the stacks and into the public forum to consider how collecting practices, selective reading, and erasure of past knowledge informs and distorts contemporary debates.
