“Material Encounters in the Archive” frames a dialogue between four interdisciplinary feminist scholars whose research addresses the potential, as well as the limits, of the archive as a theoretical and physical site of knowledge production. Our speakers will reflect on how engaging with archival objects — as collectors, curators, and researchers — has shaped their understanding of the archive, not only as repository for extant documents but as a productive apparatus that shapes the contours of what is valued as legitimate information and scholarship.┬áThe presentations will be followed by a moderated discussion and Q&A open to the audience.
