Today, I had the incredible privilege of sitting in on the “Archival Gaps and Silenced Subjects of the First French Empire” at #WSFH18, featuring .@cacayne, Sophie White, .@DrKBlock and .@DannaAgmon (.@Historiann was an invoked panelist)
The panel was excellent - anyone interested in questions of archival practice, historical methodology or ethics should seek these amazing scholars out. My phone was charging during, but I took lots of notes, and wanted to share some of the things that stood out to me.
SW: We need to attend to "silences that hang in the air even when we do have testimony" - IOW, all silences are not equal, and silences that are deliberately left by historical actors (in particular indigenous & actors of color) need to be read as deliberate rhetorical choices.
