SCAA invites you to present a session at the 2017 Annual Meeting at the Citadel in Charleston, SC on October 20, 2017

This year’s theme is “South Carolina at War.” 2017 marks centennial commemorations of the United States’ entry into World War I, the end of involvement in the Mexican Expedition (1916-1917), and the creation of Fort Jackson in Columbia. The 2017 Program Committee seeks proposals that highlight preservation, access, and applications of archival materials documenting the experiences of military personnel and civilians in the face of conflict and struggles for peace.  


The conference will also feature three options for participants to share their collections and experiences:  45-minute traditional presentations (1-3 speakers), 20-minute short presentations (1-2 speakers), and a poster session to showcase accomplishments and special projects of South Carolina archivists and allied professionals and students.

Our keynote speaker is civil rights photographer Mr. Cecil Williams, an eyewitness to and chronicler of many important events of the civil rights movement and of social change in South Carolina. He will not only share his experiences during this dynamic time in local and national history, but also his current project to catalog and preserve thousands of negatives and images in his vast body of work, working in tandem with Claflin College in Orangeburg.
