About this Event
We at the M.A. in American Studies program (MAST) are excited to announce a new recurring panel series featuring our very own students, staff, alumni, and faculty, highlighting the outstanding work that our MAST community does. To kick us off, we're bringing back alumna Ann Kane Burkly ('14), alumna and staff member Annie Moye ('12), and KSU's top archivist, Dr. Tamara Livingston, to discuss how to build a digital archive either for your research and scholarship or for personal use as well.
Dr. Livingston will start us off with a kind of Archives 101 discussion of her experience and expertise in the field of archival research. Next, Burkly will discuss her practicum in the MAST program working one summer back in 2011 at Howard Finster's Paradise Garden, during which she and two other MAST students created a digital archive, a sort of digital map, of a section of the garden for Paradise Garden's then-caretakers. Finally, Moye will discuss her capstone project with the Pasaquan Preservation Society and all the wonderful things that digital archive project led to.
This is sure to be a colorful and lively conversation between three passionate womxn about digital archives and two extraordinary art environments in Georgia, so make plans for you and your students (this would be a great extra credit opportunity) to join us on Wednesday, September 23, at 3:30PM. Please see the attached photo for details. Click here to register for the meeting.
We hope you'll join us!
