Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas 2018
Debate, discussion and discourse at the Edinburgh Fringe
Silence in the Archive
How dangerous is silence in the archive? Archivist Rachel Hosker (The University of Edinburgh) returns to the Cabaret to explore the awkward and uncomfortable issue of silence in archives. Is silence a warning? What are the dangers for us all when stories are created and facts surmised to fill the gaps? From counter-cultures and forms of capturing life, to failure of the state, Rachel will explore the responsibility of the individual and the archivist in the process of remembering and reflecting society, and the role of the digital existence. Silence can be awkward…… and deafening.
