Description

About the lecture:

Records and archives give families and individuals access to shared histories and values. Many people who grew up in care have gaps in their memories and questions about their own lives. In the absence of family records they make ‘subject access requests’ to local authorities and charities for answers. Organisational records contain their personal histories. MIRRA (Memory, Identity, Rights in Records, Access) research project is co-produced with care leavers, exploring information rights and responsibilities in social care records. This paper explores how care leavers' experiences might inform human-centred and participatory approaches to recordkeeping.
