Re-viewing lace in archives: connecting the lacunae

  • Gail Patricia Baxter

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


The archive is widely understood to be an ordered keeper of factual truth and a solid foundation of historical accuracy. However, the inherent lacunae within the archive can render this assumed accuracy fallible. This thesis questions the potential of such gaps and absences to impact on the understanding of objects in archives. An archive is defined as any collection of material which has been withdrawn from its normal circulation and stored for potential future reference.
