The History of the Future: Archives, Museums and their Value
14-15 January 2013, Miners’ Institute, Neville Hall, Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne
Organisers: Ruth Connolly (NU), Adrian Green (DU), Rachel Hammersley (NU), John J. Thompson (QUB)
This Winter School is being run by the Medieval and Early Modern Research group at Newcastle University on behalf of Newcastle University, Durham University and Queen’s University, Belfast. The disciplinary reach is concentrated on English Literature, History,
Geography, History of Art and Music and within a chronological range of
1400-1900. We hope this event will be both a fact-finding mission and a community-building exercise, conducted by researchers, archivists, and curators seeking to find the best ways to work together.
The event is free and all sessions are open to all interested researchers, archivists and curators in North-East England, Northern Ireland and elsewhere. We particularly welcome postgraduate researchers. If you intend to come, please send a brief email to Dr. Ruth Connolly. This is for administrative and catering purposes.
