2:00pm to 2:25pm
From 2010 to 2011, Valerie worked with actor and humanitarian Mia Farrow to help document the ongoing violence in Darfur, Sudan, and neighbouring regions. This collaboration resulted in the Sudan and Darfur Research Collections at the University of Connecticut, a collection of digital photographs, oral histories, and archival materials at the university.
This presentation will provide an overview of the archival work that was undertaken, the challenges of working with digital materials on human rights violations, and lessons learnt from these project. The presentation will also address issues of documenting humanitarian work, cross-continental digital advocacy, and authenticity.
Valerie Love is Research Librarian for Digital Materials at the Alexander Turnbull Library, National Library of New Zealand.
