The Archives Society of Alberta is pleased to announce that the inaugural issue of Fonds d’Archives is now available at http://www.fondsdarchives.ca. In keeping with its focus on archival issues from a practical, working-level perspective, the first issue features articles on outreach and decolonisation activities at archival institutions. For further information about the journal, please visit the “About the Journal” page located here: https://fondsdarchives.ca/index.php/fondsdarchives/about.
Although papers on all aspects of archival practice are welcome, the next issue will focus on Indigenizing archival institutions. Articles can focus on Canadian or international contexts and topics to consider can include relationship-building with Indigenous communities, repatriation of Indigenous records, institutional responses to the TRC Calls to Action, case studies relevant to the theme, or similar topics. Emphasis should be on working-level archival practice (i.e. what have or your institution done to Indigenize your archives, what has worked, what has failed, what’s next, etc.).
The next issue will be published in February, 2018. Submissions on the theme or other topics related to archival practice should be submitted no later than October 16, 2017.
Please consult the Submissions page (https://fondsdarchives.ca/index.php/fondsdarchives/about/submissions) for further information about the process.
