Discussion (1)

  1. It was really a critical interactive session. I raised the issues related to occurrence of distortions due to archival patterns and their spatial impact across civilization. The hosts keenly responded to the issue. Besides, practical distortion of / through representation must be taken care where we practice semantic paleographies or archiving or curating the pre/post/colonials in all respects may have space for developing a better e – infrastructure of digital information in the knowledge system establishing technaesthetics of colonial humanities.
