TRAVELS INTO AND OUT OF THE RECORD

Archives: The Journal of the British Records Association (2013), 39, (127), 17–29.

Abstract

The paper discusses some features of journals and travel accounts. They are, as any record, a repository of meanings, some to be read in the record or inferred from the intertextuality that connects it to other documents. Other meanings have to be deducted from the context of the record’s creation and use. Therefore, historicizing the social and cultural practice of archiving and understanding the archival consciousness of society are important.
