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.

The main aims of this blog are to make others think about the role of archives in social activism and in closing the gap between academics and practitioners.
