Lecture: Doing Gender in the Archive In this lecture Prof. Tamboukou draws on archival research with seamstresses’ narratives at the Bibliothèque Historique de la Ville de Paris. She considers in particular two themes: the power of place and the force of gendered memories and she raises the question of why serendipity and chance have become conditions sine qua non of archival research. Drawing on neo-materialist approaches, what she suggests is the possibility of considering archival research as a process that is both embodied and embedded.
