Knowledge, Institution, and Archive

We live in a world crisscrossed by multiple sites of knowledge production.  The production of new knowledge unfolds through a wide range of social and institutional forms—from universities and disciplines, to museums, archives, professional associations, mass media, and government.  In the course of my own research, I am continually confronted by the power of institutions to shape the content and flow of knowledge.  My work in this area is an effort to grapple with these conditions, and to imagine how we might intervene to create new understandings of the world around us.
