Benedict Salazar Olgado (Bono) received his B.A. in Social Sciences and Communication from the Ateneo de Manila University and earned his M.A. in Moving Image Archiving and Preservation at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. An audiovisual archivist, Bono has worked in various media archives including as founding Director of the National Film Archives of the Philippines. He teaches archival theory and digital preservation at the University of the Philippines School of Library and Information Studies where he is currently on study leave as he pursues his Ph.D. in Informatics at the University of California, Irvine. Co-advised by Dr. Geoffrey C. Bowker and Dr. Roderic Crooks, Bono’s research is situated at the intersections of memory, technology, and archival studies, and revolves around the preservation of information within and through socio-technical systems specifically in the context of the Global South. He explores the archiving practices of communities in various states of technological, environmental, economic, and political precarity as to critique and design archives especially in relation to transitional justice.
