Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Content and Goals

This seminar will explore different forms of archives and ways anthropologists conceptualize and engage with archives in the course of fieldwork. The seminar especially builds on approaches, which conceive archival work as ethnographic fieldwork, thus going beyond of a rigid and simplified binary view on historiography and ethnography.
The seminar offers the opportunity to explore the archive as a concept, institution and as a form of socio-cultural practice and process. This multidimensional approach will allow for substantially engaging with the question of how people and institutions produce history at different times, under different power constellations and through different media (documents, photos, objects, multimedia/digital contents etc.). Following questions will be discussed: When does a private collection (suddenly) become an archive? When do (what kind of) museums emerge? What is a digital archive and how does it transform the understanding and approach to history? Etc.
Furthermore the ethnographic approach to archives will allow for discussing the crucial role of narratives as the prime ethnographic entry point to exploring archives and archiving.
Apart from close readings of compulsory texts on anthropological approaches to archives (and the conversation between anthropology and history in general) and thematic presentations, the students will have the opportunity to conduct exploratory ethnographies of archives (city/quarter; personal/family; community; digital archive etc.).
The goal of the seminar is to deepen knowledge of anthropological approaches to history (with a focus on recent contributions and debates) and to sharpen conceptual-comparative-empirical skills.
