On Tuesday, November 17, scholars and archivists from Princeton and guest institutions reflected on knowledge hierarchies and how the exclusion of certain forms of expression from institutional archives has produced gaps in our understanding of the past.

Watch the video of the second in a series of discussions hosted by the Humanities Council’s Archival Silences working Group.

Correction: In a discussion about Library of Congress subject headings, it was incorrectly stated that US Congress must vote on any changes. This was a misunderstanding. For more information on how Library of Congress subject headings are created and maintained please see the Librarian and Information Technology guide on the topic.
