About the event
The SGA Summer Workshop Series: Rooted in Memory highlights the value of Archives and Preservation in Black communities. This 5-month series highlights the importance of preservation from knowledge production at the level of the body to institutional repositories. These workshops center work of HBCU archives, archivists, and Black Memory Work(ers) and will take place during the Summer and Fall quarters of this year and will be open to the public.
Description: Personal and cultural memory lives and moves in our bodies, and informs how we operate in the world. this virtual workshop invites participants to explore the role that embodiment can play in memory work across a range of disciplines. Participants should be prepared to move, write, and reflect in your own space, and collaboratively explore movement ideas through the ZOOM realm with others. No previous dance experience necessary. All are welcome!
