Transcript of Digital Archives & Interactive Virtual Exhibits

Their manifesto in defense of Installation Rhetoric (
IR
), points us toward the potential for

“IR to recover a sense of the body as part of the
(a) exchange,
(b) creation,
(c) dissemination, and
(d) insemination of ideas in the public sphere.”

(Jacqueline Rhodes and Jonathan Alexander,
CCC Online
1.1)

orous Scholarship,
Missed Connections in an Era of Transition:
DH, Historiography, Installation Rhetoric, Oral History, Collective Memory & Public History Repositories

-- How do we acknowledge and work against dominant historiographic processes that
have erased marginalized communities?

-- How do we effectively engage with the local?

-- How do we respectfully include the voices of citizen stakeholders in our practice?

-- And how do we deliver historiographic projects in ways that stakeholder communities
outside of our field will find useful?

SYMBIOSIS
Professional language used by archivists has been distorted, “...a trend that began years ago when Information Technology professionals began talking about “archiving” back-up tapes and the like. Apparently “archiving” is now just a technological subroutine, not a rich and complex professional endeavor in its own right” (532).
