Webinar 27 marzo 2017 | March 27, 2017
https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/1709261575635267075

Están cordialmente invitados al próximo webinar de la serie Desmantelando Fronteras/Breaking Down Borders. Los presentadores invitados son Lefteris Becerra, estudiante de maestría del posgrado en Ciencias Sociales: Desarrollo Sustentable y Globalización, de la Universidad Autónoma de Baja California Sur, y las doctoras Janet Ceja y Mónica Colón-Aguirre, ambas profesoras de Bibliotecología y Ciencias de la Información en Simmons College, en Boston, Massachusetts.

En el estado mexicano de Baja California Sur no existe hasta ahora una institución encargada del resguardo y difusión del patrimonio audiovisual propio. En su presentación, Lefteris Beccera expondrá la configuración de un archivo audiovisual local orientado al acceso de los usuarios a la filmografía del estado, con el auxilio de la tecnología digital que lleva a cabo en su investigación: Formulación de propuesta para la creación del Archivo Audiovisual de Baja California Sur (1895-2016). Actualmente realiza una estancia de investigación breve en el Simmons College bajo la tutela de la Dra. Janet Ceja.

Conforme la detención y deportación sistemática de inmigrantes continua amenazando a familias y comunidades en EE.UU, los archiveros y bibliotecarios tienen un papel educativo y humanitario en difundir información sobre los derechos civiles y de inmigrantes. En esta plática, las doctoras Ceja y Cólon-Aguirre discutirán cómo el tema del desarrollo de registros es pertinente a las necesidades de información de inmigrantes en riesgo de deportaciones forzadas o inhumanas.

Las doctoras Ceja y Colón-Aguirre trabajan en el proyecto Latino Literacy, Librarians and Archivists in Boston, el cual se enfoca en la identificación e incorporación de las necesidades informáticas de la comunidad Latina a servicios de extensión comunitaria dirigidos por bibliotecarios y archivistas en Boston, Massachusetts. El proyecto es financiado por Emily Hollowell Research Grant.

El evento será en español y en inglés y se llevará a cabo el lunes, 27 de marzo, 2017 a las siguientes horas locales:

  • EEUU 14:00 horas EST / 13:00 CST / 11:00 PST

You are cordially invited to the next installment of the Desmantelando Fronteras/Breaking Down Borders webinar series. This event will feature speakers Lefteris Becerra, a Social Sciences Graduate student studying at Universidad Autónoma de Baja California Sur, and Dr. Janet Ceja and Dr. Mónica Cólon-Aguirre, assistant professors in Library and Information Science at Simmons College.

In the Mexican state of Baja California Sur, there is no institution charged with the stewardship and administration of its audiovisual patrimony. During this talk, Lefteris Beccera will lay down the framework for the configuration of a local audiovisual archive oriented towards user’s access to the state’s filmography, aided by digital technologies, which forms the basis of his research project: Formulación de propuesta para la creación del Archivo Audiovisual de Baja California Sur (1895-2016). Currently, he is a visiting researcher at Simmons College under the direction of Dr. Janet Ceja.

As the systematic detention and deportation of immigrants continues to threaten families and communities across the United States, archivists and librarians have an educational and humanitarian role to play in disseminating information on civil and immigrant rights. In this presentation, Dr. Janet Ceja and Dr. Mónica Cólon-Aguirre, will discuss the “records issues” embedded in the information needs of immigrant communities during immigrant raids.

Dr. Ceja and Dr. Colón-Aguirre are working on the Latino Literacy, Librarians and Archivists in Boston project, which focuses on identifying and linking the information needs of the Latino community to outreach services conducted by librarians and archivists in Boston, Massachusetts. Project funded by the Emily Hollowell Research Grant.

The event shall take place in English and Spanish on Monday, March 27, 2017, at the following times:

  • USA 2:00PM horas EST / 01:00PM CST / 11:00AM PST

caribbeanscholarshippic

Caribbean Scholarship in the Digital Age is a webinar series showcasing digital and/as public research and teaching in Caribbean Studies.

About the Presentation:

a small axe platform for digital practice: sx archipelagos (http://smallaxe.net/sxarchipelagos/) is the latest born-digital articulation of the Small Axe Project. It is a peer-reviewed publication platform devoted to creative exploration, debate, and critical thinking about and through digital practices in contemporary scholarly and artistic work in and on the Caribbean. Given the wide implications of the “digital turn” for our very conceptions of knowledge, our mission is to discern the ways in which the digital may enhance and transform our comprehension of the regional and diasporic Caribbean. sx archipelagos responds to this challenge with three distinct dimensions of critical production: scholarly essays; digital scholarship projects; and digital project reviews.

About the Speaker: Alex Gil is Digital Scholarship Coordinator for the Humanities and History at Columbia University and affiliate Faculty of the Department of English and Comparative Literature at Columbia University. He serves as a collaborator with faculty, students and the library leveraging non-trivial technologies in humanities research, pedagogy and scholarly communications. Current projects include Ed, a digital platform for minimal editions of literary texts; the Translation Toolkit; and, In The Same Boats, a visualization of trans-Atlantic intersections of black intellectuals in the 20th century. He is founder and former chair of the Global Outlook::Digital Humanities initiative, co-founder and co-director of the Group for Experimental Methods in the Humanities and the Studio@Butler at Columbia University, and founder and co-editor of SX Archipelagos.
