Graduate Student Paper Opportunity

Dear Professor Wosh,
I am an active member of SAA and actually went to the session you participated in during this last meeting in Austin. Very interesting, indeed! Currently, I am the archivist of the Feminist Theory Papers at Brown University and a PhD student at Simmons. My purpose for writing is to ask if you have any graduate students currently working on issues of race, ethnicity, and diversity in the archives. The work could be focused around access, appraisal, filling in the “gaps,” theory, etc. If you do have such students, could you please have them contact me? We are looking for a possible participant in a winter colloquium entitled, “The Archives: In the Age of ‘Post-Feminism’, ‘Post-Race’, and ‘Post-Theory’. Thank you for your time.
