Thesis Title: What is an archive? Zines as temporal and spatial disruptions to the archive
The project is motivated by the desire to disrupt what, where and when archives are, questioning the temporal and spatial assumptions made when working with and in the archive. Everyday cultural research regularly delves into archives without asking (many) questions of, or around it.
Through the uncertainty of zines, and using a queer methodology, this project will demonstrate the vagaries of what ends up in the archive, and present variations on what an archive could be.
