After the Archive

Date: 17/06/2013

‚ÄčA limited number of additional places are now available at After the Archive, a skills development programme for doctoral students and early career researchers in the arts and humanities who have recently returned from archival work, particularly those researching understudied twentieth-century subjects.

Talks and workshops will be delivered by:

  •  Philip Pothen, Head of Communications, AHRC;
  •  Sinead Redmond, Software Engineer and Developer, Digital Repository of Ireland;
  •  Naomi Korn, Naomi Korn Copyright Consultancy;
  •  Matthew Sillence, Lecturer in Humanities, Graduate Education and Training, UEA;
  •  The East Anglian Film Archive;
  •  Richard T. Kelly, Managing Editor, Faber Finds;
  •  Fiona Courage, Head of UoS Special Collections and the Mass Observation Archive;
  •  Dr Camilla Schofield, Lecturer in Imperial History, UEA.

The project will provide individually-tailored training that addresses the challenges of sharing archival material with non-specialist audiences. Training will be delivered by public, private and third sector partners via a workshop event at UEA London on 1-2 November 2013 and an online mentorship network. After the Archive is funded by the AHRC and managed by an interdisciplinary committee of UEA and UoS PhD students on behalf of CHASE.
