Global Archivalities: A Conceptual Workshop
Posted on April 30, 2013
The archive, as both an organizer of knowledge and a historical place, is a problematic category–one which this inaugural and international workshop will address.
In Global Archivalities we will be discussing comparative approaches to record-keeping in pre-modern societies, including materials and methodologies used by these past ‘archives’ as well as modern-day terminologies and frameworks for understanding these phenomena.
Please come discuss these issues with us!
When? Tuesday, May 7th at 9:00 AM-11:30AM
Where? History Department Library, HMNSS 1304, UCR
