New England Archivists Fall 2013 Symposium, Giving Color to Ideas
Location: Lewis-Sebring Commons Amherst College, Amherst, Massachusetts
Date and Time: Saturday, October 26, 2013 1:00pm – 5:00pm
New England Archivists’ Fall 2013 Symposium will focus on innovative thinking in the field of archives. The goal of this event is to inspire and challenge attendees, push the boundaries of current archival thought, and provide a forum for present and future dialog by illustrating ideas and ‘what-if’ scenarios that have yet to be explored by archivists in the New England region.
The symposium will feature a plenary talk by Jeffrey Schnapp (Harvard University), noted thinker in the realm of digital humanities; rounds of short presentations by NEA members; and robust moderated discussion of topics and ideas led by Jill Snyder (NARA) and Giordana Mecagni (Northeastern University). Tours of local repositories will be available in the morning.
Registration for this event will begin on or around September 16, 2013, and must be limited to 150 attendees.
