    Artefactual Systems Inc and the Association of Canadian Archivists (ACA) Foundation are pleased to announce a two-year sponsorship agreement. The agreement, valued at $3000 over two years, will provide students and emerging professionals with increased access to the annual ACA conferences, with a special focus on students presenting on the topic of digital preservation and access. This sponsorship will provide dozens of students with access to the virtual ACA conference in June 2024, and will fully subsidize a student presenting at the 2025 conference in Ottawa.

    Artefactual was founded in 2000 and is a Canadian professional services and software development company.  They provide technical support and domain expertise in archival access and digital preservation to their clients and the community. Access to Memory (AtoM) and Archivematica are the two projects for which they are most well-known. The Association of Canadian Archivists Foundation was established and federally incorporated in 2006, with the goal of providing students in archival programs with funds to support their education.

    The ACA Foundation thanks Artefactual Systems for their support of the Foundation, and the wider archival profession.

    If you are a member who is a student, or precariously employed, please contact the ACA Office for a subsidized conference registration code. The Office can be reached at aca@archivists.ca .

    Samedi 27 avril, 13h à 15h, En présentiel et en ligne
    Café Fou AELIES et YouTube Live
    Gratuit, ouvert à tous, étudiant.e.s, membres et non-membres.

    Nous espérons que vous passez une belle fin de session ! Pour bien terminer celle-ci, l’AAQ souhaite vous inviter à notre quatrième édition de table-ronde étudiante MétArchives !

    Nous vous invitons à venir de nouveau interagir avec nous dans une ambiance conviviale de style podcast pour discuter sur un sujet en particulier, soit l’exploration des archives menteuses.

    Cet événement est possible grâce à la présence de nos trois participants :

    • Caroline-Isabelle Caron est professeure dans le département d’histoire de l’Université de Queens. Elle se spécialise dans l’histoire culturelle francophone des XIXe et XXe siècles. Dans ses recherches, elle s’intéresse aux représentations du passé, sous forme de généalogies et de commémorations, et aux représentations du futur, sous forme de science-fiction, pour mieux comprendre la culture populaire des communautés acadiennes et québécoises.
    • Étienne Gagnon est étudiant candidat au doctorat en ethnologie et patrimoine depuis 2021 à l’Université Laval. Participant depuis 2020 à l’Unité mixte de recherche Capitales et patrimoines (UMRcp), il s’intéresse particulièrement aux discours tenus par les acteurs autour du « prisme patrimonial » que représente le site Cartier-Roberval, de même qu’aux manières par lesquelles les processus de patrimonialisation permettent la participation d’un nombre grandissant d’acteurs.
    • Mathieu Paradis est étudiant à la maîtrise en histoire à l’Université de Montréal et membre étudiant du Centre d’histoire des régulations sociales. Ses actuels projets de recherche concernent l’écriture autobiographique chez les militantes communistes montréalaises ainsi que les pratiques discursives du périodique révolutionnaire parti pris. Il s’intéresse aux archives dites « des marges » tout comme aux rapports de pouvoir qui influencent la production et la préservation des archives, mais aussi, l’histoire académique.

    Cette table-ronde, initiée en 2023 par Catherine Girard et Jean-Samuel Bisson, s’adresse aux étudiants et diplômés en archivistique, membres et non membres, mais également à tous ceux intéressés par le sujet. Plus on est, mieux c’est !

    Venez poser des questions et échanger avec nous pour en apprendre plus sur le côté interdisciplinaire de l’archivistique !

    Inscrivez-vous dès maintenant pour confirmer votre présence, et rendez-vous en présentiel au Café Fou AELIES, à Québec, dès 13h ou en direct sur la chaîne YouTube de l’AAQ !

    C’est GRATUIT ! Consommation à vos frais !

    You are cordially invited to a free online lecture (18 April 2024 at 12 p.m. EST): “Pauline Johnson and Her Archive: A Conversation with Dr. Rick Monture.” 

    Emily Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake) (1861-1913) was born on the Six Nations reserve near Brantford, Ontario. Of Kanyen’kehà:ka (Mohawk) and European descent, she spent her early years in the community, where her father, George Johnson, held a position of prominence as a Mohawk Wolf Clan Chief and a translator for the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Council. Pauline Johnson would go on to become a successful poet and performer, touring across North America and the UK and publishing six volumes during her lifetime. She was a strong advocate for the rights of Indigenous peoples and women, writing many newspaper articles on these topics; she has also drawn criticism for her espousal of assimilationist sentiments. She is, as Dr. Rick Monture writes, “an enigmatic figure” whose complex legacy still draws interest more than a century after her death. Join Dr. Rick Monture for an exploration of Pauline Johnson, her legacy, and her archive at McMaster University Library. 

    Dr. Rick Monture is a member of the Mohawk nation, Turtle clan, from Six Nations of the Grand River Territory. He is Associate Professor in the Departments of Indigenous Studies and English and Cultural Studies at McMaster University and the author of Teionkwakhashion Tsi Niionkwariho:ten (“We Share Our Matters”): Two Centuries of Writing and Resistance at Six Nations of the Grand River (UMP 2014). 

    This lecture is hosted by McMaster University Library’s Archives Alive program in partnership with McMaster University Alumni.
