The University of Johannesburg Library invites you to a webinar discussion on:

Archives and Special Collections Shared Archival Heritage: The Voices from the Foundations.

Archives and Special Collections have traditionally been part of the public repository. The development of a private archival repository triggered complex perceptions and imaginations. Collections and administration of personal archives demonstrated common archival conceptualization and methodologies with common intentions compared to the public archival system. The Roundtable conversation aims to commence a dialogue to debate and comprehend contestations and complexities in the field of archives and special collections. Public and Private archives repositories remain the vehicle for preserving significant archival heritage in South Africa.

Date: Thursday, 26 May 2022

Time: 10h00 – 12h00 CAT

Join the online conversation here:

Programme Director: Prof Sekibakiba P. Lekgoathi, Ph.D. Associate Professor of History School of Social Sciences, Faculty of Humanities, Wits University

Presentations from: The Nelson Mandela Foundation, The Thabo Mbeki Foundation, The Charlotte Mannya- Maxeke Institute and The FW De Klerk Foundation
