Dear Colleagues -

It is my pleasure to circulate the schedule of the next Library of Congress Radio Preservation Task Force conference, taking place Nov. 2-4. The task force is holding sessions at multiple Washington D.C. sites - including the Library of Congress, NPR, Woodrow Wilson Center, and University of Maryland.

This year we're bringing together over 250 representatives from academic, public, museum, and private sectors. Over the course of eighteen panels and four special events, we'll talk about how we might strategically increase the diversity of our primary source record by preserving the sounds of cultural and political history.

The conference convenes the Cold War Communication Project, a collaboration between the Library of Congress, National Archives, Hoover Institute Archives, Wilson Center, Voice of America, and 30 faculty (and growing). The event meets at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, a first for Film and Media Studies. In addition, we've partnered with NPR to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Public Broadcasting Act, with a special Plenary organized by NPR, at NPR itself. We have seats publicly available for this event, taking place on Thursday, November 2nd from 3-5pm at NPR Auditorium.

We additionally have some slots left for our Saturday meeting at the Library of Congress, which will also be live-streamed. If you're interested in attending, please email
