The characterization of historical absences and silences as toxics archives is provocative. I especially appreciate how the author uses imagined visualizations as a challenge to toxicity.
As an undergraduate I studied with Carlo Ginzburg whose work also examined silences in the archive and developed microhistory as a critical response (The Cheese and the Worms is one example).
The author's imaginative visualizations address our understanding of the past through creative, critical practice. Her work challenges and extends my understanding of toxic spaces.
