Talkin' 'bout our gENERATIONs

Fall 2022 Meeting  |  #NEA22SLIS


In the archives, generations converge every day. Generations of archivists work alongside one another — students, early career, mid career, seasoned archivists and retirees — each shaped by different generations of theory, practice, and innovation. Archival collections hold generations of human experience — traces of community, identity, and meaning; collisions of past, present, and future. The Joint NEA/Simmons SLIS Fall 2022 Symposium will convene archivists of every career stage, as together we explore how generational convergence shapes our work, our collections, and us.
