This chapter addresses a dimension of imperial history rarely talked about: the role of imperial archives in shaping the imaginations of historians who rely upon them for the stories they tell, the (counter)narratives they craft, and the political interventions they make. It argues that archives affect people differently depending on their gender, nationality, class, race, age, and sexuality.

Keywords:   imperial archives, gender, nationality, race, museological, historical knowledge, imperial power
