Critical Race Conversations: Race and the Archive (Online)
Dr. Urvashi Chakravarty of University of Toronto and Dr. Marisa J. Fuentes of Rutgers University discuss race and the archive in a virtual event from the Folger Institute's series of Critical Race Conversations.
This conversation addresses the meaning and implications of the archive for premodern critical race studies. What is the archive, and how do its spaces, artifacts, traces and absences affect the shape and terrain of critical race studies? What kinds of archival approaches does this work enable, reveal or require? This interdisciplinary conversation, between an historian and a literary scholar, explores the different methodological, conceptual, narrative and material affordances of the archive, interrogating how we see the archive, and how—and whether—it sees us.
