At last year’s AERI, Marika Cifor, Jennifer Douglas, Jamie A. Lee and Tonia Sutherland facilitated a conversation on generosity in archival research, scholarship and praxis. This year, Marika, Jennifer and Jamie will again make space for a community conversation about generosity, why we need it, what it looks across pedagogical and professional archival contexts,and how we—individually and collectively—enact it. Acknowledging the various and unequal pressures, losses, worries and fears members of the AERI community have experienced over this past year, we aim mostly to hold space for discussion. We ask upfront: How has generosity been demonstrated–or not–in the AERI and broader archives community this year? What kinds of generous acts and behaviours are particularly needed right now and how do we enact them? What pressures constrain generosity and how do we resist them? Faced with these pressures, how can we continue to identify, embody and model generous scholarship and scholarly practices at every career level?While some of us use individual strategies, including for example feminist citation strategies and ethics of care, this panel seeks to engage the wider AERI community in discussion about how to evolve as a generous research community. In this panel, we will continue our discussion from last year to explore together how we can follow through on our shared commitment to working within the academy’s ethically compromised spaces in ways that do not just imbricate ourselves into the hierarchies of power,but work to subvert, undermine, open doors,and make different ways of working and doing possible.
