Trove, disability, and researching history: or, digital materialism for precarious times

Journal Article


Abstract


  • In making research more accessible, Trove exposes crucial disparities and tensions within the historical discipline. Trove enables transcendence, but not erasure, of some material constraints, and in doing so it illustrates the ongoing effacement of embodied labour's centrality to the discipline. We argue that Trove provides a means of engaging with the precarious tools used by precarious bodies to produce historical knowledge.
