interrogating the archive

Interrogating the Archive Colloquium

November 2, 2018, 12-3 p.m.
VAF 306, Visual Arts Facility Performance Space, UC San Diego

This event brings together scholars, artists, writers, archivists and community members to examine methodological issues within traditional practices of qualitative research. By focusing on how knowledge production works within archives as well as outside of them, we seek to collaboratively develop new forms while also validating existing methodologies devised within communities to address the narratives, objects, ideas and experiences that are crucial for our life and projects.

Participants will present in a variety of formats – from scholarly papers, poetry, essays and conversations to performative gestures – that engage themes including: hauntings in the archive; modifying the inclusion/exclusion paradigm; the sifting, gathering and sharing of knowledge; and subversive aesthetics in everyday life.
