Documenting the Faces of Social Justice: Communities and Archives

Wednesday, February 3, 2021 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Add to calendar

This panel discussion will explore the role of archives in documenting the faces of social justice in communities. This work can be viewed through two lenses: (1) archives physically preserve the unique identity of their communities and (2) that archival practice can be an intrinsic form of social and political activism. We will speak with archivists from the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, the Studio for Southern California History, and the William H. Hannon Library. They will discuss their work and how their collections represent their respective communities. There will also be a pop-up companion site featuring select digitized items from each community’s collection.

  • Carol Wells, Founder and Executive Director, Center for the Study of Political Graphics
  • Marisa Ramirez, Archivist for Archives and Special Collections, WHHL Library, Loyola Marymount University
  • Sharon Sekhon, Founder and Executive Director, Studio for Southern California History
  • Amy Woodson-Boulton, Associate Professor of Modern British and Irish History, Department of History, Loyola Marymount University (moderator)
