Thanks to those who were able to attend a presentation on the Diasporic Literary Archives Project at the Annual Meeting of the Society of American Archivists in San Diego, 6-11 August 2012. The PowerPoint slides are now available for those who are interested in a snapshot of the presentation (SAA will also be selling recordings of many of the sessions).
Anyone interested in organizing a session on literary archives for SAA 2013 in New Orleans?
I would be interested in contributing to a session on literary archives at SAA-New Orleans. Could we make it a 4-way presentation? That would be GLAM (Group for Literary Archives and Manuscripts); GLAM(NA) (the North American GLAM); the Diasporic Literary Archives Network; and the Section for Archives of Literature and Art (SLA) of ICA. What do you think?
Sure — let’s go for it! I’ll pull some thoughts together soon (the deadline is at the beginning of October, so the clock is ticking).
