Welcome Home to MARAC!

Join MARAC at the Wyndham Gettysburg to explore the theme of "Sites of Memory." In 1863, Gettysburg was indelibly marked by the Civil War and was ultimately memorialized as the site of the Gettysburg Address. Today, it is the site of countless memorials dedicated to the memory of both Union and Confederate veterans. Sessions will explore archives as “sites of memory,” with particular emphasis on how archives are influenced by, or else are influencers in, emerging world events and technologies as well as how archives serve and adapt to the changing needs of our diverse users.
