AO: This report documents a two-day workshop held on 13th and 14th of October 2016 for scholars and archivists working in and on Africa. The workshop was held in Lusaka, Zambia on the theme of “Endangered and Post-Colonial Archives in Eastern and Southern Africa.” The workshop was coorganised by the Southern African Institute for Policy and Research (SAIPAR) and the British Institute in Eastern Africa (BIEA), and part-funded by the Review of African Political Economy (ROAPE) and the Journal of Southern African Studies (JSAS). The workshop had two broad aims: to explore the challenges and realities of preserving “endangered” material in Eastern and Southern Africa, and to plan and discuss practical steps that could be taken now and for the future to preserve and promote endangered historical material in the region.
