Greetings from the SAA SNAP section!
We are delighted to introduce our new “Main Stage” pilot program. This is an open invitation to participate in a monthly series of presentations (could be in the form of a roundtable, lightning talk, webinar, a game, a discussion session, no limits!). Group or individual presentations are welcome.
The goal of this program is to engage archival students and faculty members in co-organizing a series of events with SNAP. We are interested in learning about what projects students and early-career professionals are working on, what kind of research questions you are asking, and what tools and methodologies you are learning (school project, on-the-job, internship) to address archival issues within our communities. You do not need to be an SAA member to participate, although we suggest taking advantage of the following benefits when you join SAA:
- Community, mentorship, and networking
- Accessible professional development
- Webinars and events
- Committee memberships and leadership opportunities
- Writing and publishing opportunities
- Services specifically designed for students and early-career professionals, including the Career Services Commons
If you are interested in proposing or participating in a SNAP “Main Stage” event, please fill out fill out the Main Stage proposal form by January 21, 2022. We look forward to hearing from you!
