Graham Stinnett, Archivist at the UConn Archives & Special Collections and a Content Specialist on our HCPL3 project team, has recently completed Season 1 of his new podcast, d’Archive. Stinnett has produced 15 episodes over the course of this past academic year, each of which provides a window into the fascinating world of the UConn Archives & Special Collections. The entire first season is now available for streaming on iTunes, WHUS.org, and the UConn Archives website.
d’Archive is a weekly show curated by the Archives & Special Collections at the UConn Library to broadcast sound recordings from within collections around themes and interviews conducted amongst archivists, researchers, librarians and music aficionados. This project was established to promote unexpected collections in everyday spaces throughout the campus and surrounding community.”

Archivist Kristin Eshelman, a Content Specialist on the Ellen Emmet Rand project team, is featured in Episode 10: Archives Sampler and Holiday Cheer. The episode, which originally aired in December 2017, features “selections from the Archives & Special Collections audio recordings of poetry readings, the sounds of the future, kids tunes and animal noises as well as the appropriate dosing of holiday blues”, expertly curated by Eshelman.
Episode 6: Child Labor and Human Rights Photography features Greenhouse Studios Design Technologist Brooke Foti Gemmell alongside Media Voices for Children’s Len Morris as they discuss the U. Roberto (Robin) Romano Papers. The Romano Papers are a vast collection of physical and digital files from the prolific child labor documentarian Robin Romano. This episode aired in October 2017 following the Business & Human Rights Initiative Conference on stakeholders and their roles in light manufacturing, for which Stinnett & Gemmell curated the exhibition “Lifting the Veil: A Photographic Archive of Child Labor in Light Manufacturing “.
Stay tuned for Season 2, as Graham promises to present us with “the dusty plains and gallows of Westerns, big data and digital archives, the forensics labs of Conservation, War Photography in Central America, Public Health and AIDS Activism, and the sites of student activism at UConn.”
