Representation, Affect, and the Archives: A Shrine to Lon Chaney

  • Author(s): Blanco, Samantha
  • et al.

This paper reflects on the experience of creating a Lon Chaney shrine based on a fan’s detailed scrapbook. The shrine was my final assignment for a course that required students to make art based on archival materials. I explore how affect is an integral part of the archival research process while also making connections between affect, representation, and memory’s relationship to power in the archives.
