Critical Archiving and Recordkeeping Research and Practice in the Continuum
Keywords:Records Continuum Theory, Critical Research Methodology, Participatory Research, Participatory Archiving
Records Continuum research is increasingly engaging with critical and participatory archiving and recordkeeping approaches to research and practice, "questioning the social constructs, values and power differentials embedded in current frameworks, processes, systems and technologies, exploring archival and recordkeeping agency, autonomy and activism, and moving beyond insight and critique with the aim of bringing about transformative outcomes." In this paper, we explore the characteristics of these approaches with reference to an illustrative case, and the Records Continuum, theory, models and constructs which complement, frame and support critical archiving and recordkeeping theorizing and practice.
