I think, yes, archives are mostly associated with History. Through its definition, archive is a collection of historical documents or records providing information about a place, institution, or group of people. So, definitely, we are dealing with historical documents here. I admire Susan Goldstein for being a successful archivist, for sure, she does a lot of research and studies as well.
