Critical Race Theory (CRT) is an analytical framework that examines the relationships among race, racism, and power. Since its establishment, CRT has been applied in various academic and professional fields, including library and information science and archival studies. Participants in this virtual workshop will receive a primer in CRT and participate in a hands-on activity to explore its potential application within the archival profession.

After attending this virtual workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Identify the tenets of Critical Race Theory (CRT)
  • Consider the application of CRT to archival practice
  • List practical steps for balancing the traditional power dynamics within the archive

This session is led by Shaundra Walker, Interim Director of the University Library at Georgia College.
