Jamie A. Lee’s Producing the Archival Body weaves together many timely conversations held both in the academy and among the broader public. The book is organized into two parts, “Body Parts” and “Assembled Bodies in Action.” Each section uses multiple frameworks from somatechnics to queer theory, feminist theory, and archival studies alongside Lee’s personal experiences building the Arizona Queer Archive (AQA). This deep and insightful text will be useful for those with an understanding of archival theory and for those who work within archives as practitioners or scholars and others who seek to challenge standard pedagogical approaches to how archives are constructed.
