Abstract

Abstract:

Abu-Lughod’s piece introduces the special section “Palestine: Doing Things with Archives.” The four essays in this forum explore the challenges and possibilities of archives. They not only do what historians excel at—uncovering or illuminating past moments that reframe our understandings of the past and present—but they linger on less conventional questions of the materialities and affects of archives, as well as the formidable challenges archives present for assembly, authority, access, categorization, and political futures.
