On 25 May 2023, we organised a workshop for postgraduate and early career researchers in Bristol: “Creative Visual Methodologies: Affective Interventions in Archival Materials”. The idea was to experiment with the affordances of creative and caring methodologies when exploring archival materials that both reveal and conceal forms of affective labour. Participants in the workshop were confronted with a series of photographs featuring wet nurses and infants that were taken in Lima in the nineteenth century. The product of their interventions into these photographs is this zine:
For more information about the Bristol workshop and the photographs that participants intervened in, please see this blog post or read the editorial at the start of the zine, which is available in Spanish and in English.
The zine will soon be printed using risography, and we will add photographs of the physical version to this page as soon as possible. If you would like to print a copy of the zine yourself, please download the pdf: Zine_digital version-Aug 2023.
