Examining Activism in Practice: A Qualitative Study of Archival Activism
Novak, Joy Rainbow
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of California, Los Angeles
While archival literature has increasingly discussed activism in the context of archives, there has been little examination of the extent to which archivists in the field have accepted or incorporated archival activism into practice. Scholarship that has explored the practical application of archival activism has predominately focused on case studies or proposed methods as opposed to trends throughout the profession. This qualitative study used both individual and group interviews (focus groups and video conferences) to comprehensively examine practicing archivists' perspectives on the scholarship on archival activism to evaluate the extent to which such activism has been accepted and integrated into archival practice.
