This workshop is designed for archives professionals who want to critically and constructively examine how dynamics of whiteness affect their work. Participants will reflect upon critical conversations in the archival profession, including #ArchivesSoWhite, Mario H. Ramirez’s 2015 article “Being Assumed Not to Be: A Critique of Whiteness as an Archival Imperative,” and outcomes of the 2017 Liberatory Archives Forum in Portland, Oregon. Following an introduction to key concepts and definitions, trained facilitators will lead attendees in a series of participatory dialogues and exercises designed to unify theory and practice.
