In this panel, speakers will discuss their research regarding the impact, outcomes, and perceptions of displacement, relocation, or removal of historic records and information. Panelists through moderated questions will then weave together research insights on how recordkeepers, makers, and users interact with colonial, paternalistic, and imperial systems of information. All three panelists wish to engage deeply on questions of how locations both those currently or previously inhabited impacts the framing and understanding of records for present or future use.
Carbajal will present preliminary research findings regarding Louisiana foster care youth records through a recordkeeping approach known as “memory boxes” and the framing of these record collections during displacement as a result of natural disasters.
Nguyễn will share her research on a misinformation crisis in the Vietnamese refugee and immigrant community, affect of deep memory, and imagined records in light of the state surveillance and the lack of collective memory records.
Gorrell will share a method that she is developing called Meta Stories Origins (MSO): a data collection practice that documents the lived political experiences of black communities across the world under colonialism and how that history affects how they respond to climatic disasters.
