Projects per year
Dr Nina Lewis is research fellow for the Imagined Archives of Out of Home Care project, based in the Centre for Organisational and Social Informatics (COSI).
The Imagined Archives project is engaging in co-production of research with people who have direct experience living in out of home care. Using participatory and practice led research techniques; the project considers intersections between creative practice and living archives, as a way of understanding context and requirements for holistic recordkeeping practices and systems. It has a focus on the documentation of childhood, specifically as this occurs in contexts of out of home care; on implications through youth and adulthood of being 'captured' in formal recordkeeping systems during childhood and adolescence; and on better facilitating agency and voice of young people in the design and implementation of such systems.
Broader research interests cohere around pluralised temporalities of the archive (conceptualised as the aforeafter), and art practice as a site for producing culturally relevant information science.
