Art and politics collide in the documentation of the history of the labor movement. Several speakers from Cornell University and New York University will present their special collections of documentary photographs, political cartoons, and labor movement ephemera across a century. An additional speaker from Columbia University who is also a member of the Occupy Wall Street Archives Working Group will present about the work of that group, including how Bulkr and the use of Creative Commons licensing helped the working group with the challenges they faced collecting material outside of an institutional setting.
