Diasporic Literary Archives Network, Diasporic Literary, Diaspora Archives Network, diaspora network Diasporic Literary Archives Network A network led by the University of Reading was established in 2012 to better understand these issues. The network’s five partners are: the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, Yale University; a prominent archivist from Trinidad and Tobago; the Centro di Ricerca sulla Tradizione Manoscritta di Autori Moderni e Contemporanei at the University of Pavia; the Institut Mémoires de l’Édition Contemporaine in France; and the National Library and Archives Service of Namibia. The Aims This network aims to promote international collaboration in the preservation of, and access to, literary archives. It has brought together a group of established scholars and experts from a variety of institutional backgrounds, and across different disciplines and regions, to initiate a context in which to practice and scrutinise methodological and conceptual frameworks. Through a programme of workshops the network has sought to establish an international perspective on these issues by examining the complicated and sometimes competing motives of different stakeholders.
