These texts were contributed by Maya Dodd, Director of the Centre for South Asia at the Foundation for Liberal and Management Education, Pune. Maya Dodd’s PhD, ‘Archives of Democracy: Technologies of Witness in Literatures on Indian Democracy Since 1975′, among other things, dwelt on the literature produced during the Emergency of 1975 in India. Dodd revealed that the literature produced during the Emergency was easier to locate in University libraries in India that had systematically built up their collections in the 70s and 80s, than in the libraries of Delhi. In fact, texts that were sometimes unavailable in India could be traced in the library collections at the University of Chicago. All of these, she said, were stamped with the sign, PL480, Public Law 480, that allowed for the import of wheat from the US by India to be tied to the program for the acquisition of South Asian materials for American libraries. An international financial trade-off of the 1950s periodically unearths treasures for Indian scholars in the US. Read more on this issue at the link provided above…

Contributions to a researcher’s archive

As researchers you may have collected material that you’ve already consulted for research and are ready to let go of, or which is simply superfluous. Recently completed books and PhDs in particular leave interesting debris in the form of maps, scanned, photographed or photocopied material. If this could be of use to others in the field, this material could be scanned and uploaded as a collection on this blog. We cannot carry copyrighted published texts, but are flexible with regard to fragments of texts that are older, archival texts, etc. These collections are intended for groups of researchers who have an interest in a similar area. We request you to add notes and tags to the material you send us.

We will acknowledge you as the contributor of a particular collection. All material will be available to users under fair use guidelines.

Archive and Access was begun as a complement to and discussion point linked to the project public archives.org. The project is currently hosted by Azim Premji University which is not liable for this blog. The contents of this blog are independent of the University.
