Promoting Reflexivity and Inclusivity in Archival Education, Research, and Practice
White, Kelvin L.; Gilliland, Anne J.
Library Quarterly, v80 n3 p231-248 Jul 2010
The area of archival studies today transcends the professional field of archival science. It encompasses an ever-broadening array of disciplinary discussions and methodological approaches that are identifying, critiquing, and addressing the shifting social, cultural, philosophical, and political, as well as the technological, imperatives of record keeping and remembering in the twenty-first century. Reporting on two recent research projects and three ongoing educational initiatives, this article suggests ways in which research and education in archival studies can play a central role in promoting more reflexive and inclusive ideas, practices, and research, not only within the archival profession, but also within the various library and information science (LIS) and "i"School settings in which archival education and research might be situated.
