On behalf of the Department of Library and Information Sciences of the University of Zadar, Croatia and co-organizers we would like to invite you to the third in the series of schools that the Department organizes around the cultural heritage topics. The first two topics dealt with in the school were old books and historical manuscripts, while this one is focused on archives.


The main goal of this Conference and School is to acquaint participants with the latest developments and new concepts in the field of archival studies with the aim of providing them with an overview of the landscape of contemporary approach to archival studies. The lecture on archival and recordkeeping ideas and theories: past, present and future will give an introduction to the school which will cover the following topics: memory and cultural studies, reading the document from historian, paleographer, local scholar etc. point of view, archival research design and methods, archival theory and models, archives in society, and pedagogy.


The school is targeted primarily at doctoral students in library and information sciences and cultural heritage studies in general, and archival studies, preservation and conservation studies in particular. It is also targeted at those students in the final years of their graduate studies, as well as practitioners in the fields. We encourage post-doctoral students and faculty members to take part in the school too.


The form of the school will allow primarily students, but also other participants to actively participate in discussions after the lectures, choose a topic of interest among lectures presented during sessions, and elaborate it with the lecturer within afternoon workshop sessions. During the PhD Forum a couple of doctoral students’ research proposals will be reviewed by a panel of professors.


The Conference and School on Records, Archives and Memory Studies is organized as part of the Department of Library and Information Sciences of the University of Zadar’s PhD Programme Knowledge Society and Information Transfer.


PhD Forum will be organized by:
