Archiving Activism and Activist Archiving

Special issue of Archival Science (Volume 15, Issue 4, December 2015) edited by Andrew Flinn and Ben Alexander.

From the introduction:

“This special issue of Archival Science ‘Archiving Activism and Activist Archiving’ examines the intersections between contemporary archival practice and activism in different national, political, socio-economic, technological, archival settings, and inspired by a variety of motivations and objectives. The practices examined in these articles go beyond advocacy for more active archival approaches and incorporate the spaces and endeavours where archivists seek to creatively document political and social movement activism as well as those projects which engage with archives and the archival process as part or in support of political, human right and social movement activism.”
