Department of ALM

Research Areas

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. 

Research is carried out in collaboration with other departments at Uppsala University and with Swedish and international partners.
