About

The UCLA Community Archives Lab explores the ways that independent, identity-based memory organizations document, shape, and provide access to the histories of minoritized communities, with a particular emphasis on understanding their affective, political, and artistic impact. Research projects “UCLA/Community Archives Internship Project” and “Assessing the Use of Community Archives.” The lab is directed by Michelle Caswell, Associate Professor of Archival Studies in the Department of Information Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.
