Virtual Book Discussion with Scott Cline on Archival Virtue

April 11, 2022—Join Jennifer Meehan, head of the Eberly Family Special Collections Library at Penn State University, for a conversation with author Scott Cline about his new book, Archival Virtue: Relationship, Obligation, and the Just Archives, published by SAA, on Thursday, April 21, at 12:00 pm CT.

Jennifer explores with Scott his ideas about moral commitment, truth, difference, and just behavior in the pursuit of archival ideals. If virtues are sources of power that inspire us to act justly on behalf of a better world, then how can archival virtue be a form of radical empowerment—one that obligates us to cherish and sustain human dignity, which is the essence of archival justice?
