Lebanese Yawmiyat (diaries): Archiving unfinished stories of spatial violence

Phase I Funding
Region 1
Theme 2

This essay is part of the research project ‘Imagining Futures through Un/Archived Pasts’ led by the University of Exeter, UK and focused on ungrounding multiple forms of violence and their imbrications in the urban space of Beirut in Lebanon. Specifically, examining the aftermath of the port’s explosion in 2020 and the ongoing political and socio-economic crises, we chased individual narratives and spatial trajectories of everyday life struggles. We aimed to foreground an alternative representation of living archives, where an assemblage of stories, memories, perceptions, everyday practices, and their relations continuously shape the urban space.

Personal Practices of Archiving ‘Time’: a Case Study in Lebanon

Before sharing space, people share time. For Bergson, time is an inner duration; “a subjective, conscious experience of time” (Latta 2014). Bergson further asserts that “Inner duration is the continuous life of a memory which prolongs the past into the present” (Bergson 1913).
