Next week I’ll be visiting and speaking at the Archive for Human Rights at Duke University. I’ll be screening a recent Memorial/WITNESS video, Missing Lives: Disappearances and Impunity in the Northern Caucasus, and talk about some of the production and archiving processes and challenges; the announcement is here. I’m looking forward to seeing the Duke Archive; it is a fairly new initiative but is off to a dynamic start under the guidance of Patrick Stawski, its first human rights archivist. Collections include papers of local grass-roots organizations, as well as the video collection assembled in the 1990s by the International Monitor Institute.
