We’ll be discussing Kate Eichhorn’s The Archival Turn in Feminism Outrage in Order. Joining the chat will be author Kate Eichhorn, and several activist librarians and archivists featured in the book: Lisa Darms, Jenna Freedman, and Kelly Wooten. Follow @womenarchivists on Thursday, May 28 from 1-4 pm EST and join the conversation!

From the back of the book:
“In the 1990s, a generation of women born during the rise of the second-wave feminist movement plotted a revolution. These young activists funneled their outrage and energy into creating music and zines using salvaged audio equipment and stolen copy machines. By 2000, the cultural artifacts of this movement had started to migrate from basements and storage units to community and university archives, establishing new sites of storytelling and political activism. The Archival Turn in Feminism chronicles these important cultural artifacts and their collection, cataloging, and preservation.”
