*Practical Approaches to Reparative Description *
DPLA’s Metadata Working Group <https://pro.dp.la/hubs/dpla-working-groups/>
is pleased to announce a webinar series designed for people working with
cultural heritage data looking to deepen their understanding and practice
of reparative description. Reparative description focuses on remediating or
contextualizing potentially outdated or harmful language used in
descriptive practices, ensuring accuracy and inclusivity (definition
derived from Yale’s Reparative Archival Description).

This series will cover a wide range of topics such as representations of
gender and sexuality in cultural heritage data; description strategies for
problematic collections, non-English language materials, and graphic
images; and the use of Traditional Knowledge (TK) labels for indigenous
cultural property.

Through engaging presentations, discussions, and panels from invited
speakers, participants will gain practical skills and insights to enhance
their description workflows and promote a more just and inclusive
