This podcast was my capstone project for Professor Adam Rothman’s HIST-099 course titled, Facing Georgetown’s History, and was inspired by the methods, sources and practices of the course. I was interested in interrogating how power functions in the archives and how power can work to include and exclude sources, and as a result, stories, people and events from the archives. In this podcast, I begin by diving deep into the history of archives as a practice, consider how archives have a potential to both create silences and fill gaps, and then demystify Georgetown’s own incredible archival resources, hearing from the official university archivist herself, Lynn Conway.
