Description: Beginning in 2020, trauma became a part of everyday life. Archivists have been faced with new challenges trying to document the traumatic events around us and to work with donors dealing with personal trauma. Learn from the different perspectives of archives, oral history, and folklore how to navigate trauma informed collecting. Topics will include unique challenges, planning new projects, and resources to support both donors and collecting practitioners.
