Description

The Reorientation of the Archive as Multidirectional and Multi-vocal

With Lauren Booker

Archives hold information that can fill in large gaps of missing culture, language and kin for affected communities. To combat some problematic histories of archival practice, there has been greater interest in the reorientation of archives to be multidirectional and multi-vocal in both the passing and creating of information. Lauren Booker will speak on the notions of the ‘participatory archive’ and re-using archival documents, relating this to projects that she has worked on with the Library’s Indigenous Services branch.

Lauren Booker is a data manager at PARADISEC (Sydney Conservatorium of Music). A 2017 Churchill Fellow, her current research focuses on repatriation and the psychology of collecting and archiving.
