What are the limits of the free flow of information across international borders? Can regional and marginalized interests be preserved under the scale of global cultural preservation initiatives? Looking at the effort to preserve international content through the lenses of national significance, digital preservation, and stakeholder analysis, the presenters consider cases from Canada to Uganda. The session seeks to engage a discussion of systemic assumptions and archival biases.
