Institutionalizing Moving Image
Archival Training: Analyses,
edited by Philipp Dominik Keidl and Christian Gosvig Olesen.
The aim of this special issue is to develop a better understanding of the social, political, and cultural forces that have shaped and defined archival training in the past and present and nourish continued critical reflection. More than the institutionalization of established “best practices,” archival training’s different departmental homes within the humanities, social sciences, and sciences indicate differences in ontological and epistemological conceptualization of moving images and their role in culture. Interventions in the field of archival studies provide answers to these questions by offering insights into the multifarious turns and directions that the field has taken in the past few decades, and where it may go in the future.
