Just, Temperate, and Brave: The Importance of Evidence – and Evidence Keepers – in Chaotic Times

In this year’s Jenkinson Lecture, Laura will draw on the issues addressed in her 2019 book A Matter of Facts: the Value of Evidence in an Information Age, to argue that evidence serves not only as a bulwark against alternative facts, fake news, and outright lies but also as an essential foundation for justice, reconciliation, democracy, and peace. She will also argue that records and archives professionals must uphold their ethical obligations as trusted and trustworthy guardians, so that the documentary record, whatever its form, may serve as the standard against which “the conditions of human life” may be tested.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Best wishes
Professor Elizabeth Shepherd PhD, FRSA, FAcSS
