SCMS 2015 - Panel CFP
Deadline: August 6, 2014

Archival scholars have frequently turned to geological metaphors to explain the processes of archival selection, preservation, and the 'unearthing' of the past. Robert-Henri Bautier, for instance, compares archival collections to 'sediments of geological layers' that accumulate organically in "Les archives" (Samaran, L'Histoire et ses méthodes, 1961). Karen I. Ishizuka and Patricia Zimmermann echo this metaphor in Mining the Home Movie: Excavations in Histories and Memories, referring to home movie collections as 'archival mines' and their study as an 'excavation' (2007). Yet ecocritical studies of archival practices and their material impacts on the natural world remain few and far between.
