Arizona State University
Archiving from the Intersections and Community-Driven Archives
Deadline for Proposals
Arizona State University (ASU) Library is proud to host the final of four Project STAND (Student Activism Now Documented) forums on February 27 and 28, 2020. Project STAND brings together students, archivists, faculty, and community members from across the country to discuss the importance of student activism in academia and the need to preserve this history. This forum seeks to center the voices of historically marginalized communities, the varying intersections within these communities, and the need to create community-driven archives. We invite individuals or small-groups to submit a panel, paper, or poster presentation on the forum theme.
Notification of Acceptance
Student Projects on Student Activism
The Living History Project is a branch of Associated Students that tracks, archives, and narrates the history of student activism at UCSB. It traces the origins of organizations such as BSU, El Congreso, A.S. Queer Commission, Associated Students, etc. and outlines how they were developed and integrated into our community. This project shifts the historical point of view towards the students and shows how they enacted change on and off campus. The Living History Project amplifies the voices of the students in the face of corruption, injustice, and inequity and will continue to serve as a platform as current social and political issues arise.

This archive came out of my honors work as part of the Ethnic Studies Department at UCSD. When writing my paper, I found a lot of information was being cut/left out, and considering the institutional practices in place that work to erase student activism and student labor I created this website to serve as an archive.
This archive is devoted to past, present, and future student activists and organizers. You are all amazing and you are all working against something so much bigger than yourselves, I cannot tell you how much I admire you for that. You are amazing. The work you do is important. The institution will try to erase it, but know it changed lives.
