This week was all about archives: the nature of archives, the role they play for a person, a society, a collective, even the nation. We worked with the nature of museums, libraries, and archives. The class discussed the various kinds of archives and the elements that go into them, through case studies of the Indian Memory Project and the Asia Art Archive.
This week students have been asked to picture themselves ten years in the future, and bring an object to class, to make that projection. Each student will have 3 to 5 minutes to make a short “show and tell”.
