Event description

Description

In this talk Dr Sara Hale will give an introduction to the digitisation process and digital collections at the British Library. An AHRC Innovation Placement research fellow at the University of Manchester, Sara is currently working with the British Library’s Heritage Made Digital team and Modern Archives and Manuscripts department. This presentation will highlight digitised collections available at the library – especially digitised newspapers and printed books from the early modern period and 19th century – and will explore examples of how these resources have been used by researchers. This talk may be of particular interest to PhD students and early career researchers interested in the digital humanities and postdoctoral research opportunities.

Sara completed her PhD in the Classics department at King’s College London in 2018, with a thesis on Latin poetry composed by British authors in the 17th and 18th century. She has previously been a research fellow at the Huntington Library in California, published on Anglo-Latin poetry and is currently working on a monograph on neo-Latin ‘epistolary odes’ based on her doctoral thesis.

As part of DH Week, this talk will be followed by a reception, supported by the North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership.
