Stacie Williams co-authors chapter in archival studies book
Stacie Williams, manager of the Special Collections Research Center Learning Lab, co-authored a chapter in the forthcoming book Critical Archival Studies, edited by Michelle Caswell of the University of California, Los Angeles and T-Kay Sangwand of the University of Texas, Austin. The book highlights how archivists and archival scholars have incorporated critical theory - including Marxist, feminist, deconstructionist, postcolonial, queer, and civil rights theories -into their work. Stacie is co-author of a chapter with Jarrett Drake, digital archivist at Princeton University. The chapter details a community oral history project the authors facilitated to document police violence in Cleveland in August, 2015. The book will be published by Libraries Unlimited in 2016.
