Across the world, archivists are exhibiting a growing interest in the connections between archives (and archivists) and social justice. We believe that our understanding of the relationship between archives and social justice would benefit from a clearer definition of the terms involved and by the development of frameworks and rigorous research methods which demonstrate both in concrete and less tangible terms the impact of archives and archivists on social justice. Workshop participants are invited to engage with and provide feedback on the definitions and frameworks presented, and also to contribute their own examples to test and evolve our initial presentations.
