Call for contributions: Conference on the History of Records and Archives

The 10th International Conference on the History of Records and Archives (ICHORA) will be held online during the week of 25-29 July 2022, hosted virtually by our Content Provider The National Archives (UK) and the Forum for Archives and Records Management Education and Research (FARMER).

The year 2022 marks the centenary of a number of important events that have significantly shaped recordkeeping in the hosts countries of the United Kingdom and Ireland: in 1922, the Four Courts explosion in Dublin caused the destruction of seven centuries of Ireland’s records; and it was also the year of the publication of Sir Hilary Jenkinson’s Manual of Archive Administration.

The conference will encourage anyone interested in the practical ways that archives and records are communicated through time to discover and present stories about aspects of this practice or figures associated with it; and to reflect on recordkeeping historiography (the sources, techniques and theories that are used to study and shape the history of recordkeeping).

The call for contributions for the REFLECTIONS part of the event is open until the 4th April 2022 – more information on the National Archives’s website at this link.
