During the past decade, emerging scholarship in the fields of history,
media studies, qualitative social studies, and area studies have featured
new approaches to historiography by excavating, collecting, and analyzing
historical film footage and film documentation from archives. However,
attention to what new types of historiography will be made possible via
archival film footage has rarely been discussed among the scholars involved
from diverse geographical and disciplinary backgrounds. This collaborative
and international workshop conference aims to establish first steps toward
a more comprehensive dialogue among film and media scholars, historians,
sociologists, anthropologists, and area studies scholars, regarding their
approaches and critiques toward alternative historiography through
excavated film footage. A key theme of the conference is to raise questions
about the positionality of US archives regarding the hierarchy of global
archival knowledge regimes.
