Who Owns History?

Who Owns History?

Fair Pley / The Stand Comedy Club

Who decides what and who gets remembered? And how? Who owns our historical records, and should they? Rachel Hosker and Anne-Marie Scott (University of Edinburgh) explore the, at times, dark recesses of the information in our archives. Who owns, uses and manages this information? Why is some information disclosed, whilst other material is not? Who is in charge of our memories as individuals, families, and communities? The history of our archives is one of activism, subversion, trust, appropriation of culture, and representation through the information we keep; the future may be the looming digital disaster!

All seating is unreserved and latecomers may not be admitted.
