This new book provides an authoritative and inspiring response to today's growing fascination with the idea of the archive and contains cutting-edge research articles on the history and theory of archives and records, written by internationally renowned and emerging scholars.

Engaging with Records and Archives offers a selection of the most original, insightful and imaginative papers from the Seventh International Conference on the History of Records and Archives (I-CHORA 7).

The histories and theories' collected in this volume offer a wide variety of views of records, archives and archival functions, spanning diverse regions, communities, disciplinary perspectives and time periods.

From the origins of contemporary grassroots archival activism in Poland to the role of women archivists in early 20th century England; from the management of records in the Dutch East Indies in the 19th century to the relationship between Western and Indigenous cultures in North America and other modern archival conundrums: this book reveals the richness and complexity of archival thinking through historical and contemporary compelling examples that will captivate the reader.
