This summer, I’m doing a series on archives.
I’ll be taking a look at specific collections and articles within them, like the Cotsen Children’s Library collection, but I’ll also be having conversations about archives, curation and collecting with various people, bringing you a broad range of stories about collecting.
One of the people I hope to have a series of conversations with is Professor Tom Levin, a media theorist in the Princeton University German department, a collector with an incredible collection of audiovisual technologies and audio postcards from the thirties to the present.
I’ll be playing these on my radio show, Mondays from 1-3 PM. I’ll also have these blog pieces, however, where I’ll type up extra information and suggestions from professor Levin, and post photos of his collection or any other material we looked at.
