ABOUT
 
 

'Inside and Outside of the Archive' by Joana P.R. Neves

What does it mean to visit an archive? How does it feel to use an archive as your base, your "home", for days, weeks or months? How do the papers inside the archives relate to the outside world? Why is there often a sense of trepidation or mysticism shrouding the prospect of an archival expedition?

Joana P.R. Neves uses her experience at Smithsonian's Archives of American Art in Washington DC to explore these issues. Establishing a relationship between archival finds, the present day and her own research, Joana reflects of the "usefulness" of archives and art.

 
LATEST EPISODE

The word technē comes from the ancient Greek word to describe craftsmanship, craft or art and the human ability to make and perform.

 

technē supports outstanding students pursuing the ‘craft’ of research through innovative, interdisciplinary and creative approaches across the range of the arts and humanities.

 

It is built around this ethos of a mutually beneficial exploration with students, of what might be achieved by combining the old and the new – the past and the present – the traditional and the innovative.

 

The techne consortium comprises nine universities in London and the South-East (plus the RCA which is joining another DTP from 2019/20) and has almost 60 AHRC studentships to award each year across a range of arts and humanities disciplines. It offers rigorous scholarly training and opportunities to develop skills in innovation, critical thinking, risk taking, creativity and communication that are valued in academic and work contexts
