Example analyses will use foundational archival principles to guide learners through their work. Additionally, the presenters will highlight ways in which critical primary source analysis can be useful in addressing some of the common challenges to implementing critical pedagogical techniques." The presenters are Rebecca K. Miller (Head of Library Learning Services at Penn State University Libraries) and Julie Porterfield (who is Instruction & Outreach Archivist and WGSS Library Liaison at Penn State University Libraries).
