Pop-Up Sessions Announced!

The ARCHIVES*RECORDS 2018: Promoting Transparency Program Committee invited submissions of proposals for Pop-Up Sessions at the Joint Annual Meeting in Washington, DC, August 12-18. Pop-Up Sessions enliven the conference program by focusing on ideas and content that may have “popped up” between November 2017 (when initial proposals were due) and May 2018. We encourage experimentation and ask proposers to think creatively to point attendees in new directions.

We then asked you, members and attendees, to vote on which Pop-Up session(s) you would most like to see presented at the conference. Thank you to all who submitted proposals and all who voted - the votes have now been tallied!

Congratulations to the following chosen proposals:

210. Can They Get Here from There? Bringing Online Researchers to the Reading Room
Speaker: Scott Pitol

307. White Institution: Black Archive
Speakers: Andrea R. Jackson, Lauren G. Lowery, Dino Robinson, and Jeffrey Sterling
