The Helen Pond McIntyre ’48 Lecture by Avery Gordon.
We tend to think of an archive as a repository of memories, things, and documents from the past, or as a technique that turns or arrests the present into a past. What kind of archive safeguards, keeps company with, or “summons,” to use Chimurenga Library’s words, a past that the present hasn’t yet caught up with? Can such a past or such an archive be summoned to haunt the present as an alternative? This continues the conversation explored in the 44th Annual Scholar and Feminist Conference on Friday and Saturday, February 8th and 9th. For more information, see page 5.
