MARIETTA - Please join the Marietta History Center for On Doing History where we introduce our guests to a variety of ways people “do” history. Those who work in the fields of history include cemetery preservationists, genealogists, archivists, curators, oral historians, and just plain old historians, among others! This series will provide an opportunity to learn from and ask questions of the experts in this field. Guests will leave with expert advice on how to apply this field to their own lives.
Our 2nd event in the On Doing History series features JoyEllen Williams, the Special Collections Curator in the Department of Museums, Archives and Rare Books at Kennesaw State University. In her role, she manages collection development, collection management, outreach initiatives, and exhibitions for the Bentley Rare Book Museum. JoyEllen is a certified archivist and holds a bachelor’s degree in English from the University of Georgia and a master’s degree in Archival Studies from Clayton State University. She serves as a governor-appointed member of the Georgia Historical Records Advisory Council and as a member of the Society of American Archivists Publications Board. She is a co-host on the Archives in Context podcast and a founding member of the Atlanta Black Archives Alliance. JoyEllen has published articles and chapters in various professional publications, including Archival Issues, Participatory Heritage, Archival Outlook, and Pushing the Margins: Women of Color and Intersectionality in LIS.
