Abstract

This paper will survey the state of the art of community archives in the UK. As this is potentially a wide-ranging frame of reference special attention will be paid to community archives created by the Digital Humanities and Oral History communities. Two case studies will be examined, that of the ‘Dig Where We Stand’ community archives project (http://tinyurl.com/ktc3z5j) and the Hidden Histories project (http://hiddenhistories.omeka.net/). As well as exploring questions about the multifaceted interrelationships that exist between community and national archives, this paper will reflect on a host of challenges and benefits to be gained, for both academics and communities, at the interface of such research and community-based practices.
