The ethics of archive acquisitions: why couldn’t an important collection of British trans history stay in the UK?
This post reports that an archive collection relating to the history of transgender people in the UK was rejected by the Hall-Carpenter Archive at the London School of Economics on the grounds that there was no inventory of the collection, the materials would have to be anonymised, and that third-party copyright materials would need to be removed. The collection was later accepted by the University of Victoria, Canada.
