GENDER AND THE ARCHIVE: CONVERSATIONS ACROSS DISCIPLINES AND PRACTICESFriday 30 January 2015, Jubilee Studio 5, Digby Stuart College
University of Roehampton, London SW15 5PH
This event is open to students, academics, practitioners and others. The day is FREE but spaces are limited and pre-registration is required.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place.
In recent years the ‘archival turn’ in feminist scholarship and gender and queer theory has expanded talk of the archive well beyond history - and indeed well beyond traditional forms of scholarship - to prompt debates and interventions across academic areas, and between scholars, cultural practitioners, archivists and activists over the modes and politics of archiving, and the ways in which feminists and others create, construct and research ‘archives’.
This workshop is designed as a space for discussion across disciplines about the ways in which we understand, theorise and use archives from different academic perspectives, the ways in which archives and archival research is gendered, and the ways in which feminist interventions are changing the definition and shape of archives in the process.
The day will consist of two panel presentations (morning and afternoon), followed by a final roundtable and reception. There will be plenty of time for group discussion and exchange of ideas and experiences among speakers and participants.
