Description

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 Digital Dialogues and 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. 

In the first dialogue, scholar-archivists will offer key concepts and framing questions to advance our conversation about decolonizing public history, archiving multi-voiced and community collections, the ethics and politics of memorialization, and governmentality and surveillance in documentation, among other topics.
