Book Launch
Archives and Societal Provenance: Australian Essays by Michael Piggott
Records and archival arrangements in Australia are globally relevant because Australia’s Indigenous people represent the oldest living culture in the world, and because modern Australia is an ex-colonial society now heavily multicultural in outlook. Archives and Societal Provenance: Australian Essays explores this distinctiveness and is the first text to apply a societal provenance perspective to a national setting.
Join Australian historian Michael McKernan and author Michael Piggott to celebrate the launch of this important contribution to Australia’s record-keeping history.
