About Archival Imaginations
The 2022-23 Society of Fellows programming brings together scholars, artists, activists and archivists to explore the concept of the “archive” as a mode of inquiry, invention and knowledge production. Troubling static notions of context and singular histories, the year’s workshops provide an opportunity to explore established canons and conventions that sustain certain ways of knowing and remembering and the incompleteness of the historical record thereby engaging the power of archival practices as mechanisms of social justice.
