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.

Workshop: Our bodies are containers of truth and culture that shape our social world. How do we extend preservation to embodied knowledge in the archives? This workshop explores radical archiving methods, strategies, and practitioners. Explore when archiving becomes a radical act; what it's like to work with politically radical collections; and how to identify, organize, and catalog radical archives by preserving anarachival materiality. Radical Archiving shares some good practices when preserving performance-based work and movement cultures.

shady Radical, PhD CA is a performance archivist and founder of The Radical Archive of Preservation, LLC. Her practice is grounded in ritual, resistance, and movement practices. She uses exhibition and performance to pull anarchival material out of historical memory to activate silences and erasures attributed to forms of subjugation. Dr. Radical is Chair of the Education Committee for Society of Georgia Archivists.
