CONTEXT: Archive (session 02)

PhD Room / 301. (with Jérémie McGowan)

Archive is interested in better understanding how collections of research material might be engaged with, whether in terms of acquiring and systematizing, or as in working with and through. The cultural currency and dominance of the archive as an institution within conceptualizations of modernity is treated and tested, as well as disciplinary understandings of authority and truthfulness with respect to the positioning and deployment of archival work in the construction of subject-specific claims to authenticity.
