EABH Archival Workshop 2012 “Archives and the People - Recording Working Life in Financial Institutions” - European Association for Banking and Financial History
Banking history is often dominated by the study of strategy, economics, banking dynasties, and financial stars. The life of a bank is made up of more than this. It is the place of work and sometimes of the social life of hundreds, even thousands, of individuals whose experience is far removed from the headlines. It is the role of these individuals that we plan to explore in a workshop which will focus on the bank’s staff: as creators of records, as subjects of study, and as recorders and interpreters of archives. We look for papers that investigate how the records of bank staff can be used for wider social studies such as the history of trade unions and staff associations, social clubs, welfare provision, etc. We welcome practical contributions in the form of case studies about the relationship of the bank’s staff to the archives, such as oral history programmes, volunteer projects and staff education. We will also consider contributions from those who have experience of work outside the banking and finance sector where they are germane to the theme.
