Archival Embodiment in The Handmaid’s Tale
     Joseph Hurtgen
Abstract: Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale stresses how the archive has been used by Western patriarchy to force women to embody a servant role, existing only to satisfy male desire. Such a vision is not inclusive of the perspectives and voices of women. The archive, as I discuss it, consists of culturally produced ideas replicated across populations that inform social interaction. Archival embodiment occurs when these culturally produced ideas are written on the body. Archival embodiment occurs away from the vault and its associated records. As a result of archival embodiment, the archival record imposes the principles and narratives of controlling nodes of power on individuals.
