FSP@PPG: Archiving LGBTQ+ Lives

Thursday, December 1, 2016
12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Power Plant Gallery
Light lunch served.

In conjunction with the current Power Plant Gallery exhibit exhibit, Transgender USA: Photographs by Mariette Pathy Allen, join us for a discussion about archives and LGBTQ+ activism. What role do archives – and the processes of creating them – play in activism? What are the challenges of collecting materials during a time when LGBTQ+ individuals and groups are still under attack? How is it decided what and who to include? What are the key differences and similarities among community-based archives and bigger institutional archives?

Panelists will be: Lisa McCarty of Duke Library’s Archive of Documentary Arts, Kelly Wooten of the Sallie Bingham Center for Women’s History and Culture, Luke Hirst, Durham archivist and activist (http://durhamlgbtqhistory.org/about-the-exhibit.html#curators), and Alexis Pauline Gumbs and Julia Roxanne Wallace of the Mobile Homecoming, which is a growing experiential archive of black LGBTQ. The discussion will be moderated by PPG Director, Caitlin Margaret Kelly.

This program is part of a regular series of public discussions co-sponsored by the Forum for Scholars and Publics and the Power Plant Gallery. For more information visit Forum for Scholars and Publics
