Inward Outward, Emotion in the Archive: A Publication of the 2021 Inward Outward Symposium
On October 13–15, 2021, the second edition of the Inward Outward symposium took place online. Initiated between the KITLV and Sound and Vision, and with special support from the RCMC, Inward Outward brought together archival practitioners, artists, academics, and researchers to explore the status of moving image and sound archives as they intertwine with questions of coloniality, identity and race, focusing specifically around the theme of Emotion in the Archive. Inward Outward, Emotion in the Archive: A Publication of the 2021 Inward Outward Symposium collects different contributions from speakers of the symposium, reiterating and reflecting on the presentations that took place during the 3-day symposium. These contributions interrogate the interrelation of emotion and archival practices as they intersect with coloniality: Where do we encounter emotions, affects and feelings in the archive? How are these captured in both sounds and moving images and in the practices used to organise the archive? And, most pressingly, how do these emotions inspire us to unlearn and undo the dominant imperial practices and discourses that have determined our work so far?
