• Archives and Society: Record Keeping in Historical and Contemporary Perspective

    A panel discussion at the British Academy of Arts and Sciences held on April 9th 2014. This event explored the challenges posed by record keeping in both its historical and contemporary contexts.

His most recent book is Autobiography in Early Modern England (CUP, 2010)...

    This presentation will focus on the vital role that records and archives play in society. Archives are vital concentrators of knowledge because of their role in centralizing access to records. Records are essential extensions of human memory that can be used to help bind society together and serve as tools of social justice and reconciliation. The goal of this presentation is to highlight to the audience the important role that archives and records play in the world around them and to foster within them a greater appreciation of the need for archives and archivists.

But we are having the luxury of looking back on our past and recording some of the highlights of the work of our fellows right back to the foundation in 1660." 8. Mid close-up of busts in front of doorway 9. SOUNDBITE (English): Lord Martin Rees, President, the Royal Society and Master of Trinity College at the University of Cambridge "Science is not just for scientists, it's part of everyone's culture and also everyone needs to be involved in deciding how science should be applied, because there are all kinds of priority questions and ethical questions, and scientists themselves have no particular expertise on those, but they should engage with a very wide public and that's what we try to do in the Royal Society." 10.

Close-up hand pointing to prism in Sir Isaac Newton document 19. SOUNDBITE (English): Keith Moore, Librarian and Curator, the Royal Society "Here is Benjamin Franklin's account of the Philadelphia experiment written from Philadelphia in 1752. He says in it that he's noticed the European newspapers carrying accounts of this, and he writes the Royal Society to give a true account of the experiment. He begins by telling Fellows how to construct a kite made of silk, because of course a paper kite would fall apart in a thunder storm, and then the experiment is conducted, culminating in Franklin holding his knuckle close to the key tied to the kite and the hairs on the back of his knuckle standing up, and then he realises that lightning is of an electrical nature." 19. Close-up hand turning page of Benjamin Franklin's document, 'Flying a kite in an electrical storm (1752)' SOUNDBITE (English): Keith Moore, Librarian and Curator, the Royal Society "Here we have another famous Fellow of the Royal Society, Captain James Cook, who of course explored Australia on his first voyage in the endeavour. Here he is, returning home from the Resolution voyage, one of the Resolution voyages, and detailing how he kept his crew healthy by using sauerkraut in order to prevent scurvy amongst his naval crew." 20.
