Sample text

In Internet “archives without walls” not only is a broader public able to use archival holdings, but the holdings themselves can be greatly expanded through links to other archival collections; as a result, archival ownership also is being fundamentally transformed since documentary collections can remain in the custody of their original producers or owners and still be broadly accessible (Cook 2000). Despite these radical possibilities, as has become increasingly clear, much is also being invested in preventing the free circulation of discourse online.

23 Framed in terms of transmission rather than verification, citation alerts us to the ethics of history. Second, the shift from historical product to historical production entails a shift away from the “author” and the “work” to the power-laden intertexual borders between reporting and reported discourse within and between conventionally defined textual units. 24 Finally, in de-emphasizing the finished, authoritative text of historiography, the turn to archive brings into relief a multiplicity of textual practices besides writing (or, if we follow Derrida, as “writing,” as dissemination) and a plethora of genres of historical writing involved in documenting the past.

The token citation of a few exotic words in a foreign language can authenticate the translating discourse while reducing the translated language to a list of key words “roughly translated,” as in glossaries found in area studies monographs (Chakrabarty 2000: 17) or the vocabulaire of colonial explorers who oriented themselves toward “using words, rather than speaking” (Fabian 1986: 19). Even though translation can often involve “linguistic alienation,” (Friedrich 1989) as speakers are forced to conform to a dominant language, it is important not to fetishize the “mother tongue,” which itself can be the product of nationalist campaigns of standardization and the eradication of multilingual practices.
