Decolonizing Archives: Seeing the Unseen: A Critical Examination of the World of Archives.

 In this session, Ashleigh D. Coren will discuss ways in which identities are either highlighted or hidden within archival practice, beginning with the acquisition of a material. Ashleigh will also touch on ways in which this impacts communities and efforts to remediate historical practices. Participants will engage in a close reading of a portrait as well as engage in discussion. 

Ashleigh D. Coren is the Women’s History Content and Interpretation Curator at the National Portrait Gallery where she focuses on collections research, student and teacher programs, and public programming. Previously, she was Special Collections Librarian for Teaching and Learning at the University of Maryland, College Park and an adjunct lecturer in the university’s College of Information Studies. She holds a BA in Art and Visual Culture from Bates College, and an MS in Archives Management from Simmons University. She has held previous positions at West Virginia University and Emerson College and in 2018 she was named an ALA Emerging Leader.
