The lure of the archive
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

This chapter deals with the role and appeal of the archive. Ironically, after the so-called archival turn has long since turned, the meaning of the word archive has become overstretched, and we have reached the point when it is conceivable to have an archive of archive studies. The role of digitisation and the Internet means that archival material can be accessed from a computer almost anywhere, and the Internet itself can become an archive, or rather innumerable archives. The chapter then moves on to discuss the way that the archive has assumed a new significance in the history of sex.
