CHS - Charles Jeurgens - “Over macht en onmacht van het archief”

When:Mo 14-05-2018 16:00 - 18:00

CHS welcomes professor of Archival Science, Charles Jeurgens (UvA). Jeurgens will give a lecture about the power and impotence of archives. His research spans the full breadth of archival science and he is particularly interested in archival practices within today’s changing virtual information society. He is furthermore interested in the impact of virtualisation on existing archival institutions and archival jobs, and the valuation and selection of archives.

Jeurgens also introduced the concept of ‘historical archival science’ in order to explain the processes through which information is recorded and archival collections are born.
