I first met Magnus at an archivist’s conference and was instantly drawn to their amazing charm and appeal. They are intensely smart and amazing and I wish that instead of this podcast, you could all be in a room with them. Sharing space with Magnus is brilliant! Magnus is just…I can’t put words to it because they make me smile. Another wonderful Canadian gift to the archival community at large!
We are much stronger with trans archivists, archivists of color, differently abled archivists and marginalized archivists than without them. Much stronger. That *is* community, y’all. In this podcast Magnus and I work through issues of archival cataloging methods, hiring practices, film festival circuits and my desire to convince Martin Scorsese to donate all of his future funding to transgender film preservation.
I hope you enjoy this episode.
Archivist’s Alley is a safe conversational podcast space designed for casual and lively discussions about how to preserve our work and identities in the professional landscapes and media that we work and create in. It is an open and dynamic arena to talk about archival ideas, new projects and to celebrate the power of each guest’s voice as a critical part of this community and our world at large.
Archivist’s Alley is a collection of voices gathered from the world of the lesser represented or marginalized populations in media or media preservation. These voices are women’s voices, queer voices, trans voices, non-binary voices and voices of color. These are indigenous voices and the voices of the differently abled.
