AHRC-funded training opportunity for archival researchers

Hidden Collections: From Archive to Asset

Over the Course of the 2012/13 academic year this AHRC-funded programme is offering early career researchers a unique opportunity to develop skills in reinterpreting archival material (Image, Object, Performance and Theatre, Corpora and Film) in the context of digitisation and widening access to such material through strategies of public engagement.

Participants will gain hands-on experience of putting these skills into practice in collaboration with prestigious external partners including Tate, CUP and the BFI. The programme is open to researchers from the Arts and Humanities.   Application opens on 30th August and closes on 20th September at 5:00pm . There will be 30 subsidised places.

The multidisciplinary programme comprises five skills workshops and the opportunity to participate in one of the five corresponding projects.
