Heritage Studies: Archival and Information Studies (90 EC)

Universiteit van Amsterdam

  • Beschrijving
  • Overzicht

The Master's in Archival and Information Studies focuses on Archival Studies, and treats contemporary archival theory and practice, and trains archivists in the science and craft of record-keeping.

The computational turn has fundamentally changed the way people and institutions produce, use, collect, share, and keep information. Data is the vital fuel for a growing number of applications in daily life and has become a fundamental human resource, similar to food, energy or transportation. The result is a fragmentation and personalisation of data-creation and data-use.
What are the implications of these developments for information management and record-keeping? How is this data used and reused in bureaucratic practices, decision-making processes, or information-processing activities? What is needed to optimise accountability and enable reconstruction of present activities in the future? How to keep relevant information accessible in time? How does the data driven culture transform societal values such as transparency and privacy? How do we keep the archives of the past connected to the needs of the present? These questions are central to the Master's programme Archival and Information Studies.
