Please join us for a virtual panel hosted at Northeastern University on April 14, 12–2pm (Eastern), on the topic of antiracist metadata practices. This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required, RSVP here.

This two-hour virtual event brings together four leading scholars and archivists for a conversation on anti-racist metadata practices in digital archives. The panel highlights the important work now being done to revise archiving practices and knowledge systems. How is racism embedded in knowledge organization systems and how can we change our ways of preserving and accessing knowledge to eradicate racism? We will open with a brief talk from each speaker on current issues in the field, followed by a discussion of several Northeastern projects, to explore how leading-edge conversations may be taken up by active digital humanities projects. The last segment of the event will be an open Q&A with the audience.

This event will feature these panelists:

  • Dorothy Berry (Harvard University)
  • Zakiya Collier (Schomburg Center)
  • Valencia Johnson (Princeton University)
  • Jessica Tai (Yale University)

Following the panelists' presentations, we will have a dialogue with several Northeastern projects and institutions:

Co-sponsored by the NULab for Texts, Maps, and Networks, the Northeastern University Humanities Center, and the Speculation in the Archive research cluster.

Part of the “Information, Algorithms, and Justice” speaker series. To make space for informal discussions, this event will not be recorded
