An Archive of Feelings

The queer archiving of traumatic cultural memory from one of the leading voices working with queer archives.

What we wrote about it at the time: Ann is one of the leading voices discussing queer archives, exploring how traumatic cultural memory catalyzes their creation, alongside political communities and new forms of public culture.  She argues for the importance of recognizing - and archiving - accounts of trauma that bear witness to the effects of a sexism that does its work precisely by being constructed as normal. This event is an informal chance to take stock of what's going on with LGBTQ archives internationally and locally.
