FRIDAY SEMINAR AT SAXO ARCHAEOLOGY
 
TIME: FRIDAY 22 SEPTEMBER 2017 AT 14.15-16.00
 
VENUE: 15A-2-11 (SOUTH CAMPUS, KAREN BLIXENS VEJ 8)

"Dark Matter: Rethinking ‘the trace’ through Holmegaard Glassworks"
 
SPEAKER: Tim Flohr Sørensen, University of Copenhagen

Abstract:
Archaeology is usually understood as a discipline aiming to collect as much knowledge about the
past as possible. However, the discipline is challenged by the very nature of its sources, available
only as fragments and partially dissolved, leading to voids and vagueness. Thus, archaeological
traces are defined by epistemic uncertainty: this is the ’dark matter’ of archaeology. Instead of seeing
this as a deficiency, I suggest that archaeology needs to ask what epistemological potential is nested
in empirical absences, fragmentation and vagueness. These basic questions have long been purged
from archaeology in the cultivation of methods that work exclusively towards reducing or
eliminating absence and uncertainty. Hence, archaeology must address the fundamental question in
the humanities; what does it mean to know, when the conditions of knowledge are imperfect and
unclear? The paper discusses the potential of a methodology for studying ‘dark matter’ by focusing on a contemporary archaeological record at Holmegaard Glassworks.
