The Cultured Archive: An Interrogation of the Nexus Between Archive and Culture from a South African Perspective

  • Verne Harris Nelson Mandela Foundation

Abstract

Using the South African experience of Apartheid as his reference point, the author dismisses the term "multicultural" as one having no meaningful application. The author then proceeds to problematise the terms "culture" and "archive". The analysis forms the basis for an extended engagement with the question: "what responsibilities do culture and culturing place on those of us who work with archive?"
