In this episode, we sat down with Karen’s classmate Clara Giménez-Delgado to talk about her project processing a collection of lantern slides at the Museum of Anthropology. The collection is called the Missionary Society of Missionary Society of the Church of England in Canada Slide Collection, and it was the subject of Clara’s final project in Dr. Jennifer Douglas’s Personal Archives class at the University of British Columbia. Clara talks about witnessing, emotion and affect, reconsidering archival practices, and colonial harm in her project, and we’re very grateful to have had the chance to talk to her about the archiving process.
