In order to consolidate and disseminate research and investigations on the theme of Provenance of Knowledge, as addressed during the CIDOC 2018 conference held in Heraklion, Crete (29 September to 5 October, 2018), we have teamed up with the journal Heritage to put together a Special Issue in this series on these questions.
The concept of provenance of knowledge plays a crucial role in sciences and the humanities, particularly in the documentation activities and the record and evidence keeping undertaken and maintained by GLAM institutions (galleries, libraries, archives and museums). It provides the ultimate warrant of validity of information. Provenance has a deep history of practice in these communities, but presently faces specific new challenges. This Special Issue will address the theme of Provenance of Knowledge especially as approached by the documentation and memory institution community. This theme entails the critical consideration and advancement of provenance as a concept/practice in its traditional form, its extension as a concept within different disciplines, questions of digital provenance, and critical reassessment and of provenance to question entrenched claims to knowledge and authority. Documentalists, cultural heritage specialists and memory institutions as a whole stand at a crucial interdisciplinary junction and have an important theoretic and practical contribution to make on the critical adoption of the concepts/practices of provenance both in application to heritage as such, but also with regards to wider scholarly conversation on its broader application in an information age.
Authors who contributed papers to CIDOC 2018 on the question of provenance of knowledge are encouraged to submit contributions to this volume, as are researchers working in this area who were unable to attend but wish to join this conversation.
