Lecture Title:  Displaced Evidence: Interdisciplinary Archival Research and Oral History across Languages and Cultures

Abstract:  The archive has long been a place to find evidence for those in the humanities. We immerse ourselves in the public, written word, losing ourselves to studies of narrative, characterization, language, and more. And yet, we rarely stop to consider why the archive is the way it is. Who is included in the archive? Or, better yet, who is excluded from the archive? Through an examination of method, this presentation will examine how we pursue research projects with incomplete archives.

Presented by Ian Hagarty, Professor in the School of Art & Design, and Daniel Kaufmann, Associate Professor in the School of Art & Design, recipients of the 2021-2022 MU Distinguished Artists & Scholars Team Award.
