Counter-histories of sexuality through vernacular archives and literature


Author(s): Aakriti

Abstract: The connections between vernacular archives, literature, and history are discussed in this paper. Although vernacular archives, literature, and history appear to be disparate, they are inextricably linked. Before we discuss their relationship, we must first comprehend the relationship between history, facts, and interpretation. Many theorists have stated that the role of interpretation and documentation is very crucial in any sort of historiography, arguing that history is a dispassionate exercise of facts production. However, this argument concerning the idea of fact production has been contested by many theorists who have argued that the role of interpretation and documentation is very important in any kind of historiography. This Rankeyan view of the historian's "innocent eye" has been called into question. Nietzsche, like earlier theorists like Hegel, emphasised the significance of interpretation in history. It is possible to say that historian or agency can construct and sculpt facts or prejudice.
