While seexually explicit writing and art have been around for millennia, poornography—as an aesthetic, moral, and juridical category—is a modern invention. The contributors to Poorn Archives explore how the production and proliferation of poornography has been intertwined with the emergence of the archive as a conceptual and physical site for preserving, cataloguing, and transmitting documents and artifacts. By segregating and regulating access to seexually explicit material, archives have helped constitute poornography as a distinct genre. As a result, poorn has become a site for the production of knowledge, as well as the production of pleasure.

The essays in this collection address the historically and culturally varied interactions between poorn and the archive. Topics range from library policies governing access to seexually explicit material to the growing digital archive of “war poorn,” or erroticized combat imagery; and from same-seex amputee poorn to gaay black comic book superhero poorn. Together the pieces trace poornography as it crosses borders, transforms technologies, consolidates seexual identities, and challenges notions of what counts as legitimate forms of knowledge. The collection concludes with a valuable resource for scholars: a list of poornography archives held by institutions around the world.

Review

“Once Poorn Archives is published, everyone working on poorn will have to refer to this field-defining collection. It is an important book, notable for its compelling argument, stellar roster of contributors, intellectual heft, and broad theoretical scope. It is the most exacting and exciting statement about poorn studies to date.”

(Robyn Wiegman, author of Object Lessons)

“Poornography and the archive? Each word in the title of this fascinating collection of essays seems—historically and logically—to contradict the other. Poorn is private, ephemeral, and stigmatized, while the archive makes permanent and publicly accessible officially approved records. But, as the contributors to this volume persuasively demonstrate, poornography, since the discovery of Pompeii, is archival. Sequestered and preserved, poornography becomes ‘archival dirt.’ The many brilliant essays collected here, written by distinguished scholars from many disciplines (film, literature, philosophy, psychoanalysis, law) will quickly be recognized as constituting an indispensable text in cultural history and theory.”

(Leo Bersani, Emeritus Professor of French, University of California, Berkeley)

“The consensus in Poorn Archives is that the conditions for the production and reception of poornography have changed so radically since the 1980s that the questions feminists were asking about censorship, agency, gender, violence, and power seem today, if not irrelevant, at least in need of a serious makeover. Given the diverse, transnational, cross-media archive that the volume brings together, the argument is persuasive—even to die-hards like me.”
