Networking Across and Managing Up

“Networking across,” as advised by actress-writer-producer Issa Rae, involves tapping into your existing network to complete projects with laterally positioned, like-minded individuals before approaching larger institutions. The intention of this discussion is for speakers to share their experiences with increasing organizational capacity through partnerships with other similarly positioned organizations, as well as fostering equitable community engagement. Additionally, speakers will discuss how to manage the expectations of funders and other stakeholders alongside project goals and organizational capacity, and how to set boundaries with larger organizational partners.
Hosted by Dr. Synatra Smith, CLIR/DLF Postdoctoral Fellow in Data Curation for African American Studies at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Library and Archives and the Temple University Library Loretta C. Duckworth Scholars Studio

Collections in the Era of the Climate Crisis

In October 2018, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued a Special Report warning that the world has approximately 12 years left to significantly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions if we are to have more than a 50% chance of keeping the global temperature increase to below 1.5°C (about 2.7°F), the amount of heating that scientists agree is the upper limit for avoiding the most dangerous effects of climate change. Communities from the Gulf Coast to the West Coast and Alaskan Arctic regions are already experiencing devastating impacts of extreme weather events and heat exacerbated by climate change. Archivists, responsible for the long term preservation of the historic and cultural record, have an ethical responsibility to prepare for climate disruption by developing mitigation and adaptation plans to protect the collections we steward. Meanwhile, archivists are actively preserving and making accessible historical and contemporary collections that document our changing world and the impacts of climate change on communities, human lives, wildlife, public policy, the economy and the natural environment. This session brings together a scientist studying historical climatology alongside archivists, media producers and researchers who have experienced the impacts of (un)natural disasters in the course of their work and who are working to expose historical data for climate modelling and preserve collections that can be used to support research and public education to generate greater awareness and understanding of the climate crisis.

Discussion will center on protecting collections from disasters; sustainable preservation; preservation of indigenous knowledge of the environment and collections documenting climate change; the ethical responsibilities of archivists in the era of the climate crisis; and the deep intersectionality of this work with climate, environmental and social justice movements.

Hosted by Casey Davis Kaufman, Associate Director, GBH Archives and Project Manager, American Archive of Public Broadcasting
