Archivophilia: A Symposium
... And a love story.
Yes, it's true. The allure of the archive (whether hand-written letters, detailed ledgers, maps, inventories, diaries and journals, brittle clippings, faded photographs or audio recordings--just for a start) pulls us in every time.
But what do we make of what we find?
Join us for a day of presentations and reflections by scholars from multiple fields--anthropology, history, ethnic studies, literature, linguistics, and American studies--working in some of the most complex, original, and fascinating archives today.
