Call for chapters: Counter Archives: Communities, Archive/Counter-Archive (A/CA), Canada. Deadline for abstract: November 1, 2021.
Editors: Stacy Allison-Cassin, University of Toronto, and Antoine Damiens, York University.
Archive/Counter-Archive solicits chapter proposals for Counter Archives: Communities, a hybrid media book under consideration with Concordia University Press. Political, resistant and community-based counter-archives disrupt conventional narratives and enrich our histories. Counter-archives embody both a theoretical approach to conceptualizing archives and a mode of practice—a practice that resists the universalizing force of dominant techniques of documentation and standardization at work within most institutional archives, libraries, and museums. They seek to counter the hegemony of traditional archival institutions that have normally neglected or marginalized women, Indigenous peoples, the LGBT2Q+ community, and immigrant communities. This volume is the first book within a potential book series edited by the Archive/Counter-Archive network. It seeks to reflect and theorize marginalized communities’ engagement with (counter)archival materials and protocols. As such, the book aims to decenter traditional archival narratives by focusing on community-led practices.
