Overview

In the new information age, what is the role of libraries and archives in civic engagement around issues of territory, identity, and history?  How do librarians and archivists maintain and present primacy historical documents, mediate their communication and delivery, and facilitate access to them by the public?  Join us for a program exploring these questions with an emphasis on the relationship between the mediums of cartography and the moving image.


“Living History: The John Feathers Map Collection” (11 min, Dir. Alex Ernest, 2017) This is a film about the emotional power of maps. And, while that subject matter might not seem like the most stimulating fodder for the documentary form, over the course of this film’s 11 minutes Ernest and his interview subject, Glen Creason, are intent on changing your mind.
