We will kick off the conference with a keynote from Dorothy Berry entitled, “Keeping Whose History, For Whom: Writing the Stories Digital Preservation Tells.”

The increasingly reclamation of words like "archive" and "museum" by racially and culturally marginalized digital curators brings up questions of digital ownership, permanence, and preservation. The role digital preservation plays (or doesn't) in the creative organization of history storytelling is complex and often either invisible or ignored. The responsibilities digital preservationists have to creator communities are, perhaps, even more complex with competing macro views of long-term preservation for future access and micro views of creator autonomy and divestment from supporting/controlling institutions. This talk will explore these complexities while imagining a collaborative environment for creators to make informed decisions about how and why their digital stories are preserved.
