Roundtable: Archivista Praxis
Members of the University of Washington Library’s Women Who Rock: Making Scenes, Building Communities Oral History Archive Collective discuss archivista praxis. Habell-Pallán introduces the ethics of deliberately employing a networked archive as a tool for social change. De La Torre remixes artifacts to build an archive where none exists, showing how Chicanas in the 1970s Pacific Northwest altered public broadcasting to reach women farmworkers. Macklin focuses on digital media practices in building the Women Who Rock Oral History Archive. Viveros considers the decolonial possibilities of using archival material collected under colonial ethos for academic research by proposing what she calls theor-ethical-based scholarship.
