The School of Information’s Emerging Teachers/Scholars in Archival Studies Program (ET/SAS), is designed to be inclusive and apply our mission in ways to expand the curricular activities in archival studies. Our focus is on LIS/INFO 540, the Introduction to Archives graduate course, which is the prerequisite for the Graduate Certificate in Archival Studies. The ET/SAS connects with emerging teachers and scholars in the archival studies discipline to support the online Introduction to Archives course. ET/SAS focuses on emerging archival studies teachers, and scholars, who are from underrepresented communities and/or who are conducting research in distinct areas that have often been overlooked in archival and information studies more broadly. Such an opportunity offers our graduate students new perspectives in archival studies. More importantly, this program offers emerging scholars the experience of developing their own online course under supervision of the core archival studies faculty member while staying focused on the course objectives— always with an eye on opening up the curriculum to new experiences in and out of archives that connect students to diverse and multiple communities, records, and collections.
