Journal for the Society of North Carolina Archivists
Special Topical Issue: Collecting Communities
Call for Papers
J-SNCA is a peer-reviewed journal that seeks to support the theoretical, practical, and scholarly aspects of the archival profession.
The editorial board of J-SNCA invites members of the research and archival communities to submit articles for a themed issue, Collecting Communities, to be published online in fall 2017.
Today, many in the archival profession are actively working to identify, document, and better serve communities that have been underrepresented, misrepresented, or entirely unrepresented in their collections. Marginalized communities, communities whose histories are documented in non-traditional formats, or communities that primarily exist in the online world all present challenges and opportunities for archivists to collaborate with community members and make archives – both their collections and their services – more inclusive and far-reaching.
This notice is a broad call for papers [shorter articles 1,500-4,000 words in length] that discuss specific ways archives are working to document and collaborate with communities. We would be particularly interested in articles that discuss the broader lessons and meanings that collecting communities has for the larger archival community.
The deadline for article submission is August 1, 2017. All members of the archival community, including students and independent researchers, are welcome to submit articles. Contributors need not be members of Society of North Carolina Archivists or live in the state of North Carolina. Article proposals are welcome and encouraged.
