In his first public presentation since the launch of the Digital Transgender Archive earlier this month, Dr Rawson argued that archive-building is itself a rhetorical practice, outlining the ways in which archive creation is a form of authorship and addressing the radical and transformative potential of digital archives.

We’ll be posting media from Dr Rawson’s visit next week, including an interview conducted by DWRL Assistant Director Sarah Frank and a complete video of Dr Rawson’s presentation. Watch this space!
