history, sound, and creative practice in the archive @ the university of california-santa cruz library center for archival research and training.

The University of California-Santa Cruz Library’s Center for Archival Research and Training (CART) is pleased to present Echoes of Seema Weatherwax: History, Sound, and Creative Practice in the Archive. 

This program will celebrate the recently processed audio archive of the Sara Halprin Interviews of Seema Weatherwax. Brock Stuessi, a former CART Fellow who processed this archive, will be joined by scholar Michael J. Kramer to discuss the unique opportunities of working with sound archives and the ways that the recorded words of Santa Cruz photographer and activist Seema Weatherwax—who worked with the Weston family, Ansel Adams, and other notable photographers during her artistic career, and who was married to writer and political activist Jack Weatherwax—give voice both to the historical value of everyday life and to her important legacy of activism and art.

Moderated by Alix Norton, Archivist for the Center for Archival Research & Training (CART).

Hosted by  Special Collections & Archives, The University Library.
