Archive sind Wissensräume. Sie sollen Informationen und Wissen dauerhaft überliefern, ordnen und abrufbar machen. Das Forschungsprogramm des Graduiertenkollegs „Archiv, Macht, Wissen“ an der Universität Bielefeld fragt nach den Bedingungen und Zusammenhängen von Organisation, Kontrolle und Zerstörung von Wissen in ihrem konstitutiven Verhältnis zu Macht und Herrschaft. Dabei bekommt das Wechselspiel zwischen Erinnern und Vergessen besondere Aufmerksamkeit.
Bislang wurden Archive vornehmlich passivisch befragt, also: Von wem werden Archive organisiert, kontrolliert, zerstört und welche Folgen haben diese Handlungen für Akteure, Organisatoren und Gesellschaft? Die Frage nach der Transformation des Wissens durch diese Prozesse wurde bisher weniger berücksichtigt. Anhand unterschiedlicher Gegenstände widmen sich die vier Beiträge Fragen der Transformation von Wissen und Wissensbeständen infolge von Störungen und Entstörungen.
Störungen irritieren häufig und werden nach Möglichkeit ausgeschlossen. Jedoch: „Kein System ohne Parasit“, sagt Michel Serres. Versuche Störungen auszuschließen können zerstörend wirken. Die Beiträge des Panels orientieren sich an einem Modell, in dem Störungen nicht einfach externe Faktoren einer sich abschließenden Kultur sind. Das Störende kann nie völlig ausgeschlossen werden. Es kann, wenn auch in anderer Form, wiederkehren oder verschoben werden: „Dem Produzenten geht es um den Inhalt, dem Parasiten um die Position. Wer sich um die Position kümmert, wird den, der sich um den Inhalt kümmert, stets schlagen.“ (Serres) Entstörung wäre dann der Versuch, mit Störungen umzugehen – ohne diese je zum Verschwinden zu bringen. Die Beobachtung des Umgangs mit der Störung kann dabei helfen, neue Aspekte von Kulturen des Wissens sichtbar werden zu lassen. Die Strategien der Entstörung vermögen die Bedingungen freizulegen, unter denen Herrschaft sich entfaltet. Der Blick auf Entstörungen würde folglich mehr über jene Kultur auszusagen erlauben, die versucht, die Störung auszuschließen oder zu unterdrücken. (Vgl. P. Geimer; Ch. Hoffmann)
Störungen und Entstörungen stellen also eine dynamische Qualität für Archiv, Wissen und Macht als Produzenten kultureller Bedeutung bereit; diesen gehen die Beiträge beispielhaft von der römischen Republik bis ins zwanzigste Jahrhundert nach.

Archivstereotypen. Nachgeordnet, aber gefährlich ?

Die Bundeswehr hat ein Archiv mit geheimen Daten gelöscht, die vor allem Auslandseinsätze betreffen. Das ergaben Recherchen von http://tagesschau.de und Report Mainz. Opposition und Experten sprechen von einem Skandal und befürchten internationale Folgen: So könnte die Verfolgung von Kriegsverbrechern durch das UN-Tribunal in Den Haag erschwert werden. [ via http://tagesschau.de]

So stiefmütterlich Archive manchmal behandelt, da wo „Gefahr“ droht, sind sie ruckzuck vernichtet.

CALL FOR PAPERS FOR I-CHORA (4) Australia 2008

International Conference on the History of Records and Archives
Perth, Western Australia 3-5 August 2008.

Minority reports: Indigenous and Community Voices in Archives

The general theme of this conference explores issues relating to the history of recordkeeping by and about Indigenous peoples, migrant communities, minority communities, forgotten and disappeared communities. This includes historical and contemporary responses by these groups to recordkeeping by dominant communities. This conference also welcomes discussion on the impact and histories of the destruction of archives relating to the above communities and peoples, and the role of records in human rights contexts, including slavery and reconciliation.
We invite submissions of proposals for papers that report on original research into topics and themes that have not been widely discussed in the archival literature. Papers may treat any time period, any format and any national jurisdiction.

Topics might include, but are not limited to the following areas:
• Cultural provenance / virtual repatriation
• Collecting against the grain
• Representation and self representation
• Approaches to keeping cultural memory
• Expanding definitions of archives beyond traditional formats
• Reading traditional records to tell new stories
• Historical and contemporary approaches to outreach and access
• Absences and silences in archives and cultural institutions

We encourage cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives on issues relating to the scope of the conference.

Proposals may be for individual papers or for whole sessions which may consist of 2-3 papers and a panel discussion.

Papers by people from Indigenous, migrant, minority and forgotten communities are particularly welcome.

Proposals for papers
Abstracts should be approximately 300 words and in word or RTF format. All papers will be refereed.
Proposals should be sent to ichora4@ecu.edu.au by 14 July 2007. We will advise on acceptance by the end of October 2007

The language of the conference is English.

The Declaration of Halle, 16 April 2000

Academic Heritage and Universities – Responsibility and Public Access

Universities must acknowledge their wide cultural roles. Academic collections and museums provide special opportunities for experiencing and participating in the life of the University. These collections serve as active resources for teaching and research as well as unique and irreplacable historical records. In particular, the collections of the oldest European universities provide windows for the public on the role of the university in helping to define and interpret our cultural identity. By valuing and promoting this shared academic heritage, our institutions demonstrate a commitment to the continued use of these resources by a broad public.

The Programme

The representatives of collections and museums of several European universitites assembled at Halle agree to found a network, „Academic Heritage and Universities“. The network is open to interested academic institutions with similar collections and will collaborate closely with other relevant initiatives.

The objective of the network is to share knowledge and experiences among its members and to undertake joint projects with the aim of enhancing access to the collections at all levels. In particular, the network will pursue the following objectives:

1. to establish a directory of collections in the respective academic units which contains information about the extent and nature of the holdings in order to enhance access to and use by those collections by students, academics and a broad public;

2. to stimulate public awareness of the collections by facilitating the production of travelling exhibitions and the exchange of material, including loans, and to promote understanding of the collections through scholarly research and teaching;

3. in view of the growing use and potential of electronic media for cultural expression the network will particularly explore the use of the World Wide Web and the creation of „virtual“ museum resources to promote access to the academic heritage;

4. to organise conferences and symposia on topics of common interest and, where appropriate, to facilitate the exchange and enhancement of technical skills and expertise amongst members.

In view of the continuing need to promote the use and understanding of the academic heritage the network will continue to meet to develop joint projects which meet these objectives. Help for these initiatives will be sought from the EU-Program „Culture 2000“.
