Egypt Migrations is proud to host a three-part webinar series in partnership with the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies in winter 2022. Archives and Community-Building is a webinar series emphasizing reparative and non-extractive researcher relationships with Global South and local community repositories. Featuring panelists from Egypt, Canada, and the United States, this practical introduction to archiving, collecting local histories, and preservation is intended to guide participants in ethical and community-based approaches and best practices. We are excited to collaborate in protecting and promoting our diverse histories across the Middle East and its diasporas.

Our first webinar is an introduction to the archives scheduled for Friday, January 28th. Register now: https://ucsb.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZIkdeGqqj8rG9TJZ3XqjUbQ1gWIYr98fMjH
