Archiving Communities of Resilience and Resistance in Caltech's Present and Past
The legacy of Caltech is marked by stories of injustice. It is also marked by the communities forged in the face of that injustice, exclusion, and bigotry. In this event, a panel of current and former members of Caltech's staff, faculty, and student body (Rochelle Diamond, Dr. Melany Hunt, and Dr. Edray Goins) offer reflections on their personal histories of organizing, agitating, and advocating on campus. In doing so, we consider the ways that remembering those histories - through practices of archiving and other forms of memory work - can inform, ground, and inspire present and future activism at Caltech.
The event will also include remarks from Dr. Peter Collopy, Caltech's University Archivist, and will be facilitated by Nivetha (Niv) Karthikeyan as part of her 2020 Milton and Rosalind Chang Prize project, "Intersections: Building Solidarity Through Community Archives."
