Emergence: Documents in Crisis

In a world filled with political turmoil and a global health crisis, spawning needs for new knowledge, documents, and documentation practices have a special and important role to fill. In maintaining the legitimacy of scientific knowledge, presenting health scenarios, channeling creative output in social distancing, and establishing protocol, documents and documentary practices are essential. Documents and documentary practices contribute to the wellbeing of people—both on individual and collective levels—as they form the basis for the organization of everything from social control to creativity to securing basic human rights. The Document Academy welcomes completed research, research in progress, general conceptual and theoretical work, projects and case studies, creative and practical work in areas of document theory, document analysis and document materiality relevant to the conference theme.
