Read: Critical Archival Studies
This essay does some very important and much needed work naming and defining “critical archival studies”. It was published in 2017 in the online journal Journal of Critical Library and Information Studies.
In this essay Michelle Caswell, Ricardo Punzalan and T-Kay Sangwand highlight how “critical archival studies broadens the field’s scope beyond an inward, practice-centered orientation and builds a critical stance regarding the role of archives in the production of knowledge and different types of narratives, as well as identity construction” (p. 2).
