Fictional World of Archives
Gerade entdeckt: David Mattison betreibt seit 1999 die Seite "The Fictional World of Archives, Art Galleries and Museums": "Archives, archivists, records managers, secret documents and lost manuscripts have been used as characters, settings and plot devices in many stories, novels, movies and TV shows, as well as jokes and cartoons. The tradition of fictionalizing archives extends back to Graeco-Roman times according to classicist Mary Lefkowitz. Today, archives, archivists and records are so important to fiction that this Web page was written to document as fully as possible their many representations found in popular culture".
