A Promise of Future: Derrida’s Archive Fever and Images of Child-Saving in the John Joseph Kelso Fonds at Library and Archives Canada

Paula Kelly Presentation Poster

On March 7 from 11:30AM to 12:30PM, Paula Kelly, a student in the University of Winnipeg MA in Cultural Studies Program, will present a visual analysis of children’s images from the John Joseph Kelso archives at Library and Archives Canada as part of a Special Studies course supervised by Mavis Reimer. She draws upon Jacque Derrida’s Archive Fever: A Freudian Impression to explore the visual rhetorics in these images and how they signify the archive’s relationship to the future. This presentation is open to the public and will take place in Room 3M64 at the University of Winnipeg.
