Unifying critical theory with compelling case studies and philosophies of practice, this panel will engage with literal, metaphorical, and affective presence(s) of death in the archives. Speakers will discuss the relationship between state archives and necropolitics, complexities of access and use in archives that document death, and epistemologies of death and dying in community collections.
