  • 1.  CALL FOR PROPOSALS: WCS/DSGS JOINT SECTION MEETING PRESENTATIONS

    Posted Jun 04, 2021 04:25 PM

    The Women's Collections Section (WCS) and the Diverse Sexuality and Gender Section (DSGS) of the Society of American Archivists (SAA) are once again seeking panel proposals and presentations for a joint WCS/DSGS section meeting to be held during the 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting of the Council of State Archivists (COSA) and the Society of American Archivists.

    This year we are seeking proposals that focus on surfacing stories of women and the LGBTQIA+ community and how access/engagement/outreach have been affected during this unprecedented historical moment. We especially invite proposals from individuals that highlight stories of Queer and Trans people of color. 

    Proposals will be reviewed by both WCS and DSGS section steering committees. They will be prioritizing proposals that intentionally address critical and anti-oppressive research and practices.

    Please submit proposals via this google form: WCS/DSGS Proposals for SAA 2021

    The deadline for all proposals is June 15th, 2021. Notifications will be sent out by June 30th, 2021. 

    Feel free to email the WCS and DSGS co-chairs at wcrt.saa@gmail.com and marcosv@uidaho.edu or alanav@arizona.edu with any questions or concerns
