Creating a Record of It: Digital Archives for the Past, Present, & Future

We are excited to announce a new recurring panel series featuring our very own students, staff, alumni, and faculty highlighting the outstanding work that our MAST community does. To kick us off, we’re bringing back alumna Ann Kane Burkly (’14), alumna and staff member Annie Moye (’12), and KSU’s top archivist, Dr. Tamara Livingston to discuss how to build a digital archive either for your research and scholarship or for personal use as well. 

Dr. Tamara Livingston will start us off with a kind of Archives 101 discussion of her experience and expertise in the field of archival research. Next, Burkly will discuss her practicum in the MAST program working one summer back in 2011 at Howard Finster’s Paradise Garden, during which she and two other MAST students created a digital archive, a sort of digital map, for Paradise Garden’s then-caretakers. Finally, Moye will discuss her capstone project with the Pasaquan Preservation Society and all the wonderful things that digital archive project led to. 

This is sure to be a colorful and lively conversation between three passionate womxn, so make plans to join us on Wednesday, September 23, at 3:30PM.  Click here to register for the meeting.
