CFP Radical Recordkeeping

Radical, by the Oxford Dictionary definition is:

1. Especially of change or action relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something;

2. Characterised by departure from tradition; innovative or progressive.

The journal Archives and Manuscripts (Routledge/Taylor & Francis)  is inviting submissions of up to 5000 words for a themed issue on RADICAL RECORDKEEPING for publication in November 2017.

Aims and Scope The concept of radical recordkeeping is broad in scope: it can encompass recordkeeping of radical acts, as well as radical approaches for the formation and use of records and archives. Radical recordkeeping serves to disrupt traditional recordkeeping paradigms in revolutionary or profound ways using different approaches that inform practice, scholarship and teaching.

We are hoping that this call elicits submissions that come from persons with varied experiences, organisations, and time in the field. We realise that this call is broadly conceived. Not sure if your idea or paper fits with the theme? Contact:

Deadline 1st April 2017
