Monday, April 26, 11:30 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. (webinar)

Presenters:  Rachel Wen-Paloutzian and Laura Poladian (Loyola Marymount University)

While active learning practices have gained momentum in archival instruction in recent years, the switch to online environments lends itself more to a show-and-tell style of sharing archival materials. How do we create a virtual space for more meaningful interaction between archives and audiences? Participants of this webinar will discover ways of using Padlet, a digital interface, to invite audiences to immerse themselves in and work imaginatively with archival objects in a virtual space.

What it means to be responsible for climate-related records: Creating and using climate-related archives

Monday, April 26, 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (webinar)

Presenters: Jillian Lohndorf (Internet Archive) and Claire Williams (University of British Columbia)

Climate change has created new levels of precarity for archival holdings throughout the west coast; it is a cumulative result of past actions often taken in the interest of capital, which had large scale impacts on our environment. These actions have a corresponding historical record which can be found in archives throughout the west. Today, climate change disproportionately affects different communities based on intersections of power and privilege in North America.
