Documents have recently returned from their marginalized position in information studies and in several other areas of the social sciences. In this seminar I plan to give an overview of some of the topics I'm pursuing in a grant-funded research project with the above title. I'll identify some of the theoretical concepts that I have found useful for thinking about documentation, extracted from Wittgenstein, Latour, Foucault, and Deleuze. Examples are documentary agency, authorless statements, assemblages, and documentality. If time permits, I'll introduce some current work on the documentality of the human body.
