We are pleased to announce the first lecture of this semester in the series
"History Department Scholarly & Social Meeting"  taking place next
Tuesday, October 16, in Hanák Room, at 17:30.
 
Professor István Rév will speak about:
 
The Archive ("What's in a name?")
 
The occasion of the lecture is the coming Open Access Week (22-28 October) a global event now entering its sixth year (see: http://www.openaccessweek.org/ ),  and the recent publication of a new manifesto, "Ten years on from the Budapest Open Access Initiative: setting the default to open" on the tenth anniversary of the original Budapest Open Access Initiative. (See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Budapest_Open_Access_Initiative )
I intend to talk about the historical roots and antecedents of open access, starting with pre-biblical times, and put special emphasis on the changing nature, function, role, identity of archives.
 
The Scholarly-Social Meetings, a joint student-faculty initiative, combine lecture series with after-hours integrative event. The aim of the Scholarly-Social Meetings is to provide insights into the work undertaken at our department and, no less importantly, to bring our students and faculty together in a more informal way, building up an academic community beyond the day-to-day scholarly activities.

All faculty, students and staff are welcome!
 
We are looking forward to seeing you all,

Nadia Al-Bagdadi
