Abstract (English)

"There is a crisis in the archives. The contemporary world requires that increasingly vast amounts of material be archived and accessed, and this presents unprecedented possibilites and problems for the production, storage, and use of knowledge. With this context in view, Lost in the Archives explores the productive potential of memory's failures-its technical dropouts, omissions, burials, eclipses, and denials." -- p. [2] of cover.
