Research at the Department of ALM
The research programme at the Department of ALM brings together perspectives from archival studies, information studies and museum and cultural heritage studies. The unique aspect of research in Uppsala is that it nurtures an interdisciplinary interest in information and knowledge infrastructures, collections and societal memory from the vantage point of the changing premises, patterns and practices of their making, organisation, management and use from historical and contemporary perspectives.
The contexts and topics of research range from institutions to individuals, from historical to contemporary, analogue to digital, professional to participatory, work to play, making to mediating and from competences to the policies of regulating them in the society.
Research is carried out in collaboration with other departments at Uppsala University and with Swedish and international partners. We are regularly hosting national and international guests.
The department has a doctoral programme in information studies with students with a background in information studies, archival studies and museum and cultural heritage studies. Doctoral students and teachers participate in the activities organised under the auspices of NORSLIS (Nordic Research School in Library and Information Science) and its successors. The department has also a collaboration agreement with the Division of ALM, Lund University on doctoral education with joint seminars, student exchange and cooperation in supervision of doctoral students.
The department publishes a scholarly journal and a proceedings series for scholarly monographs and edited volumes. A comprehensive coverage of the research output of the members of the department can be found in the DiVA portal, the institutional repository of Uppsala University. A large number of master's theses are available through a designated thesis search service.
The Department of ALM is a partner in the international Centre for Digital Heritage. The centre has its seat at the University of York (UK). Other partners in the network are Aarhus University (Denmark) och Leiden University (the Netherlands). The centre organises annual conferences, summer schools and provides neworking opportunities for researchers from all participating institutions.
