Writing Undocumented Stories: A Discussion of Alternative Archives

Tuesday, May 1, 2018 - 14:00 to 17:00


Columbia Anthropology Department: Sheldon Scheps Memorial Library, Room 457 Schermerhorn Extension

Please join us for a workshop designed to be an opportunity for graduate students and faculty to discuss any unconventional source we are working on with people from various disciplines, including the four of us and two external commentators. Unconventional sources can be as varied as oral history, oral traditions, historical linguistic reconstructions, photographs, artifacts, maps, paintings, landscape, climate data; anything that goes beyond written documents. We hope to provide a forum to discuss problems, issues, and questions that arise when working with non-textual evidence.
