Announcing Archivaria 68: Special Section on Queer Archives

Archivaria 68 (Journal of the Association of Canadian Archivists)features the Special Section of Queer Archives. Our fearless CE leader, Kate Zieman, is a contributor and CE member Rebecka Sheffield is the co-editor. The CLGA makes several appearances in this issue.

If you are not a member of the ACA or an institution that subscribes to the journal, you can request a single issue online here: As far as we know, this is the first time that an archives journal has produced an issue that is almost entirely LGBT content -- even the book reviews are part of our special section.

I've copied the table of contents below to pique your interest.
