Join us for a pre-meeting site visit to Bishop Museum Library and Archives on Friday, February 17th from 2-3pm. Click here to register for this event. Space is limited to 18 individuals.

Each of us has a role within our society: a commitment to each other for the protection of human rights, freedom of speech, the press, and assembly. Consider the role of archives in Hawaiʻi and the stories housed in our collections. In a climate where book bans, discrimination, misinformation, and violence are more common, archives can act as reliable sources. The 2023 AHA Annual Meeting explores the broad themes of representation, access, and dissemination–all key tenets of both archives and society– and examines the role of archivists as information professionals.

The program includes:

Keynote Address

“Honolulu Cityscapes of the 1850s, Aligning the Past with Today,” Tory Laitila, Curator of Textiles and Historic Arts of Hawaiʻi at the Honolulu Museum of Art.

This session looks at the 2022 exhibition “Mauka to Makai, Honolulu Cityscapes of the 1850s” curated by Tory Laitila at the Honolulu Museum of Art, and investigates how an art museum presented a history exhibit emphasizing location and place.

Audience Discussion

Making time and creating space (location and place) for AHA members to discuss the theme Archives, Context, and Society. Moderators will encourage conversation with questions, but questions from the floor are welcomed. Questions will be circulated in the program prior to the event.
