Are you an activist?

If you are a historian or archivist, broadly defined, and you consider
yourself an activist, we invite you to fill out a survey about your
experiences. The definition of “activist” that we are using is “an
especially active, vigorous advocate of a cause, esp. a political cause.”
This survey is being collected for a study of historians and archivists as
activists. The survey explores the ways in which people participate as
activists and the consequences for their employers and themselves. We
anticipate this survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete.

The survey can be found at:

Your participation is strictly voluntary. By answering the survey, you are
agreeing to participate in the study. You may skip any questions you do not
want to answer. Your name and contact information will not be collected, so
you will remain anonymous. Data will be used in summary form for the most
part. Where individual answers are used in the study, the identification
will be too general to identify a specific individual. For example, instead
of describing someone as a forty-something Korean archivist at a religious
archives in Oregon, the person would be described as an Asian archivist in
the northwest.

If you have any questions or problems that arise in connection with your
participation in this study, you should contact Dr. Beatriz Hardy, the
project co-director, at 757-221-3055 or bbhard[at]; Sonia Yaco, the
project co-director, at 757-683-4483 or SYaco[at]; or Dr. Lee
Kirkpatrick, Chair of the Protection of Human Subjects Committee at the
College of William and Mary at 757-221-2778 or lakirk[at]

Thank you for taking the time to fill out this survey!
