Thoughts after “Archive Lab”: Archive Three-Sixty

This analysis and critique of the Walt Whitman Archive appears in the pilot issue (April 2011) of Archive, a journal that focuses on the use and theory of archives and special collections in higher education. Post-‘Archive Lab,” it offers a case study in the analysis of literary digital archives.  This journal seems well worth checking out, especially this quotation from its “Archives, Remixed” feature: “We need another take on archival practice: not practice in theory, but practice in action; not the 1990s, but now; not in terms of textual patterns, but in terms that suit the subject: the terms of the archival encounter itself, and the eccentric, anachronistic and even monotonous experience it generates.”
