PUL and HBCUs Join Forces to Launch Inaugural Archives Student Program

June 13th, 2018

 

How do archives, historical narratives, and social justice work hand-in-hand? As part of the Library’s inaugural Archives Research and Collaborative History (ARCH) Program, 12 undergraduate students and two graduate students from historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) across the nation will explore this connection at Princeton University Library from July 9 to July 13, 2018.

A partnership between Princeton University Library and five participating HBCUs, the ARCH program will introduce students to the archival field, the importance of diversity in archival collections, how to use primary-source documents, and potential career opportunities. During their week on the Princeton campus, students will be engaged to think critically about how archives form historical narratives, particularly the connections between the archives and social justice.
