Archives are often central to historical production, but what counts as an archive? How have scholars and theorists of history understood the material bases of historical sources? Have these concepts changed with political, social, and environmental transformations? Can our everyday landscapes be read as historical archives? What are the archives of the future and what role do archives play in future-making? This workshop explores these questions, and others, by interrogating the experiences of working with/in various archives and by considering problematics raised in archivisation practices and theories.

Speakers: kitt price, Fiona Candlin, Eleni Liarou and Joseph Viscomi.
