This is the tale of a podcast that focuses on archivists in conversation with archivists, discussing their work and passions and how they care for the historical record and present the storied past. Hosted by husband and wife archivist team Karen Trivette and Geof Huth.
National archives are often at the forefront in preserving the
cultural heritage of the world, one nation at a time. However,
not all archives are on equal footing. Archives’ abilities to
govern, preserve, and provide access to invaluable records is
impacted by colonialism and post-colonialism, access to
technology, and natural and man-made disasters. In this panel
discussion, join researchers of the International Directory of
National Archives (IDNA) as they share insights from their
research of national archives around the world and the national
treasures the archives govern, preserve, and share.
