CORE 003 SC - Creating Archives: Archives, Disciplinary Knowledge, and Research


We will examine the long history of the "archive," including classical libraries, monastic collections, wonder-cabinets, modern archives, and new digital archives. We will explore the ways in which collection practices shape and are shaped by disciplinary practice. Archives from a range of different disciplines will be considered, including biological and mathematical sciences, corporate and national archives, literary archives and libraries, and perhaps even the long geological archive of the earth. Readings will help us theorize and problematize the concept of "archive" as a transparent, natural, and neutral space. Students will develop their own "small-archive" based on their research interests.

Course Credit: 1.0
