Reading Workshop: "On Archives and Their Affects"

May 1, 2019, 12 p.m.
366 Visual Arts Facility, UC San Diego

Led by Shoghig Halajian, PhD Student, Visual Arts with Prof. Alena J. Williams, Visual Arts, UC San Diego

Interrogating the Archive: Shared Research Methodologies at the Intersection of Aesthetics and Authenticity is a research project which addresses key methodological gaps in qualitative research practices. By focusing on forms of knowledge production in the archive, this interdisciplinary group seeks to develop entirely new shared research methodologies for tracing the lives of marginalized communities, ‘ethnographic’ objects, and unconventional artworks that are systematically subject to erasure by dominant cultural paradigms.
