Church and Society-Crossing the Divide: unravelling the Presbyterian archives collections to enhance research.
An aspect of the archival mission is to seek ways to convey the nature of our holdings to a broad spectrum of users and researchers. This means we are required to discern what changing patterns and trends are taking place in the field of research to assist researchers make sense of our collections for their purposes. This lecture will explore the research possibilities found within the Church’s rich resources that touch the disciplines of history, peace studies, gender studies, cultural studies, and public and religious theology.
