Hi all, my name is Annelie and I welcome you to Identity & Archives! This blog is managed by myself and explores all things.. you guessed it.. Identity & Archives.

This blog is a passion project of mine as I strongly believe in making research more accessible – both in terms of what is produced and the research process itself. My main aims are to make others think about the role of archives in social activism and in closing the gap between academics and practitioners.

A new blog post is published every second Monday. Subscribe by providing your email address and be among the first to hear about new posts and receive some additional content.

Who am I?

I am a research archivist at the University of Melbourne’s eScholarship Research Centre.

My research interests include:

  • Interoperable systems and systemic thinking
  • Personal archives and identity formation
  • Digital humanities
  • Archives and social justice
  • Coding
