Volume 9  |  Issues 1 and 2  |  Summer 2012

Why have archives become so central for our understanding of our historical moment and of ourselves as subjects of history? This double issue looks at archives as calls to action. Rather than stable repositories, archives are examined as acts and practices in transit that mobilize different media and are mobilized by them.
