Open to the public
A presenation as part of a Fall 2020 series on Data Management by Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
The series, Digital + Creative Knowledge Sharing: Data Management in Creative Research, was supported by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (Research Data Management Capacity Initiative), Emily Carr University Research + Industry Office, VP Academic and Provost Office, Emily Carr Library and First Nations Information Governance Centre.
“In this presentation, Data and archiving in the face of state erasure: a case for Research-Creation methods, Dorit Naaman will address data management through emergent research-creation methods in the settings of contested territory and traumatic histories. It describes Naaman’s interactive documentary project, Jerusalem, We Are Here (2016), which was built on, and continues to generate, a dynamic archive of ephemera and stories about homes in West Jerusalem by the Palestinian families who were displaced from them during the 1948 war. This work presents the ethical challenges inherent in participatory projects that result in sensitive data alongside expectations for wide-spread public dissemination.”
