Her presentation, “Feminist Ethics of Care and Legacy Building at The Feminist Institute,” discusses how TFI is situated within the history of women’s memory organizations and how feminist ethics of care power our postcustodial partnership program. She also provides a case study of our work with feminist artist Mary Beth Edelson.

Through our partnership program, we offer essential legacy-building resources, funding, and archival support. We develop custom solutions to preserve archival fonds at risk of being lost, digitize and provide digital access to hidden collections in storage, and maintain digital projects without infrastructure support, ensuring that data can be platform-agnostic for long-term access.

We hope to see you there!
