Online lecture with Geoffrey Yeo

The Archival History Section steering committee invites members of the section and SAA to attend a virtual lecture on February 7, 12 PM EST, by archives and records management researcher Geoffrey Yeo. Yeo will speak about his two recent ventures into the field of archival history: his book Record-Making and Record-Keeping in Early Societies and his paper "Let Us See What Is Meant be the Word 'Recorde.'"

During his lecture, Yeo will address the following questions: Why did the topic of record keeping in early societies appear fruitful for investigation? What challenges did he face, what approaches did he take, and what were the conceptual standpoints that he adopted in his writing? What lessons did he learn, and what pointers might his work offer to others who wish to study archival history in the future?
