Historical Void, Memory, and Archive

Volume 10, Number 2, March/April 2011

Article Description

June 18, 2010. On the bus travelling from Phnom Penh to Ho Chi Minh City, Long March Project participants reflected upon contemporary strategies of administering historical narration, memory, and archives that determine the visual presentations of history today. They asked: how can we re-examine the ways we understand the past through language, imagination, media interpretations, and various knowledge systems? This text is a partial transcription of the hour-long discussion.
