Podcast: Archives and Activism: The Contemporary Turn

Podcast on “Archives and Activism: The Contemporary Turn,” from a panel discussion moderated by Emily Drabinski and featuring some others you may know.

From the site:

Over the past two decades, the archive has emerged as a central site of feminist knowledge production and activism. Feminist archives and special collections have been able to document activist movements and make previously obscured forms of knowledge visible. This panel brings together a group of feminist librarians, archivists, scholars, and activists to explore this “archival turn” in contemporary feminism. Panelists include Jenna Freedman (Barnard College), Alana Kumbier (Wellesley College) and Kate Eichhorn (The New School). This discussion, moderated by Emily Drabinski (Long Island University), took place on the first day of Activism and the Academy: Celebrating 40 Years of Feminist Scholarship and Action, a two-day conference held September 23-24, 2011 in honor of the 40th anniversary of the Barnard Center for Research on Women.

The talk is part of an event on “Activism and the Academy.” The talks are all available in podcast form (available from the page for this talk, linked above).
