Historicizing the Archive

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

This article introduces a collection of articles that discuss the nature of “the archive” in the research and writing of media history. The archive is defined as a concept that covers questions of interpretation, evidence and authenticity. Therefore, the archive provides a focus for a critique of acts of classifying, collecting and storing the “evidence” that is the basis for media history. In this analysis archival logics and practices become themselves artifacts of history.
