The 2022 SIA Spring Workshop will consist of two sessions hosted by the Indiana Historical Society's Local History Services. The sessions will be held virtually on the afternoon of Tuesday, April 19, 2022. The Spring Workshop is available to attend for free with any Annual Meeting registration.
Session 1: Collecting Current History with Karen DePauw
1:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Many collecting institutions focus on the "past" but find it more difficult to collect the present. This webinar presents ways to increase collecting of current topics and deal with some of the specific issues that can raise.
Session 2: Difficult History with Tamara Hemmerlein
3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
One of the most important roles of history organizations is to thoughtfully and intentionally interpret history, even when that history is hard. In this training, we’ll talk about “difficult” history by identifying what it is and various approaches to telling difficult stories. We’ll discuss some ways to help people move beyond the barriers to learning those stories.
