Sophie Roberge

Sophie Roberge was born in Toronto, Ontario in 1990. She graduated with a BA in History from Concordia University in 2014 and MAS/MLIS from the University of British Columbia in 2017. During her studies, she has focused primarily on queer community archives and the affective impact of archives. Her paper “‘Those Whose Residence is (not) Assumed’: Empowerment and the Affective Impact of Participatory Description,” was nominated for the Gordon Dodds Prize. She has undertaken an information management project for the Ending Violence Association of BC, created a digitized photograph collection for the BC Gay and Lesbian Archives, and put together a resource guide for the Nisga’a participants in the Breath of Life Language Restoration workshops. Roberge has volunteered in the Crista Dahl Media Library & Archive since Spring 2015 and has served on the organization’s Archives Committee since January 2017. She has been the co-chair of the Progressive Librarians Guild at UBC since September 2015, through which she has planned a professional panel on Accessibility & Assistive Technologies and a student roundtable discussion on Queering the Library. She is currently working as a Digitization Assistant at the UBC Digitization Centre and is undertaking a professional experience at the Audrey and Harry Hawthorn Library & Archives at the Museum of Anthropology. She is deeply committed to using her training in libraries and archives towards the support of social justice and community initiatives. Sophie was VIVO's Archivist for 2018 and 2019 Archivist-in-Residence. Her project, Every Queer Thing, seeks to make visible the LGBTQ2S+ materials in the archive.
