Unsettling Archives 2022

Joint Conference

Zentrum für transdisziplinäre Geschlechterstudien der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in Kooperation mit dem Program in Gender & Sexuality Studies; Princeton University


The 2022 conference Unsettling Archives focuses on the relationship between narrative and material accounts of the body and the frictions that unsettle and confirm gendered and racialized certainties about archival knowledge production. This includes work with material objects, classificatory orders, and the narrative, socio-material, spatial, and temporal constellations that configure archives and questions concerning memory. How do we deal with the upsetting and violent effects of archive formation and what are possibilities of rendering unstable, unsettling hegemonic archival practices? How can we re-imagine archival methodologies? Can we conceptualize the body as archive or architectures and spaces as unsettling actors of history and memory? What is the role of the personal in counter-archiving? Re-imagining here means reading both with and against the grain, focusing on the postcolonial entanglements and the sexual politics that any form of archiving entails.
