To Preserve, Present, and Engage/Préserver, présenter et engager
In history, financial institutions have always played major, often pioneering roles when new countries were built, independence was established, or peacetime re-building started. They initiated state and infrastructure building by helping other companies (re-)start their
businesses in new legislations or after disruptive periods.
In this workshop, we are looking for collections, databases and archival projects that shed light on the link of financial institutions as builders.
This is a workshop for:
• Archivists holding relevant material on the matter that either have examples of how to explore the material or wish to engage with researchers.
• Banking practitioners wishing to engage deeper with their own institution’s heritage.
• Researchers looking for new evidence to exploit in the context of their financial history research.
