Calling all historians, anthropologists, and archive / heritage practitioners!

The Archival Platform’s aim is to facilitate dialogue and information sharing between professionals, academics and government employees in the heritage and archive sector.

The Archival Platform has now launched their website  The Platform was recently established to promote networking, advocacy and research on archives, museums and heritage issues in South Africa, linking to broader debates in Africa. We are particularly interested in improving communication and collaboration between government, practitioners and academics in the sector. We also seek to promote public engagement on these issues.

You can sign up for the newsletter on the website.

The resources section allows you to download various academic papers and provides links to a number of helpful websites relating to the archive.
