Processing the Past

Contesting Authority in History and the Archives

Francis X. Blouin, Jr and William G. Rosenberg

  • A unique approach to the relationships between archives and the formation of historical knowledge jointly conceptualized by an archivist and a historian
  • Develops a new understanding of the "archival divide" separating contemporary historical scholars and their former colleagues in the archival community
  • An essential work for scholars interested in understanding how archives really work, and for archivists interested in understanding current dimensions of historical scholarship
  • Addresses how the study of history has and will change with the development of new technology
  • Explains problems of access to archives and why they are likely to continue for conceptual, political, and technological reasons
