PhD course on document analysis
Documents are everywhere. To a large extent they define our lives, what we can do, where we can travel, and who we are. Political institutions are centered on document work, such as that of drawing up plans, evaluations, making policy resolutions, or even a new constitution. Documents come in the form of paper, but increasingly also in digital form. Some documents sit quietly in a bureaucrat’s drawer or in an archive, but often documents are quite active.
