"Archival repatriation"

Meeting #3: Archival Repatriation

Wednesday, October 3 at 4:00 pm

Location TBA


Discussion facilitator: Lisa Conathan


The concept of "repatriation" as applied to archives covers a wide range of practices that provide communities of heritage with increased access to and control over relevant archival material. These practices include making copies of material, allowing community control over physical or intellectual access, or physically giving collections to communities.

Here's an interesting news blurb which I think is relevant to our discussion on Wednesday.

Apprently Duncan, B.C., whose town motto is the "City of Totems" implemented a policy this summer that permission must be requested before taking photographs of totem poles. Here's a link to an article in the Globe and Mail (http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/LAC.20071004.BCTOTEM04/TPStory/?query=duncan) and to Boing Boing's coverage (http://www.boingboing.net/2007/10/04/photographing-totem.html).
