CTDA in Context is a call for critical reflection and action based on acknowledging the power and inherently political act of documenting histories that provide a privileged status to archival objects and the people they represent. Any interested person or group is welcome to participate in CTDA in Context. Find out more about how to get involved.


We are committed to identifying and breaking down socialized power structures and inspiring institutional and systemic change. Our work is grounded in archival research and discourse and shaped by collaboration with our content managers, colleagues, and those with lived experience of being misrepresented or excluded in historical records. 

As the only digital preservation program serving the entire state, the CTDA has a responsibility to help end the systemic erasure intrinsic to historical records and archives in Connecticut. CTDA in Context provides an intellectual, practical, and collaborative space for people to create an approach to overcoming the challenges we all face. We invite you to join us and help inspire and create change. 

Our website, like our project, is just beginning. Stay tuned for more information as we create it!
