Long abstract:

This panel would invite papers which encompass subject matter which details the experiences of turning photographs and other visual images into digital and hard copy archives. It would also consider how digital archives can be used for teaching and as a starting point for research. Papers might also reflect on how we can better collect and organize material that might eventually become an archive. That would mean thinking about photographs as archives before fieldwork commences. Other papers might consider contemporary issues regarding how to work with digital images; how to digitise film. Papers might also consider issues of where to store visual images; how to store them; for whom are these images were taken; and how their purpose might change over time; as well as ethical concerns regarding the use of images.
