More about the program:

The panelists will explore the preservation of knowledge generated through social activism, including textual and non-textual knowledge, providing examples and explaining theoretical issues related to each. A variety of perspectives will be represented on the panel, including that of a political philosopher who has written about the preservation of non-textual knowledge, a librarian who has worked on a social activism collection, and a filmmaker who has documented the social activism of LGBT communities. For more information, please refer to the following guide: This ANSS/PPIRS program is co-sponsored in-name only by the GLBT Round Table.

Full conference registrants can access the recordings for free.   You will need to log into the site to access the mp3.
