Logic of the Archive: M3C Archive Training
Thu 27 April 2017, 09:30 – 17:00 BST
Whether hunched over manuscripts in the reading room or searching for keywords in an online database, most researchers will be confronted with using an archive. Given that all archives are unique, most training for postgraduate researchers is usually focused on getting to grips with specific collections.
This workshop is different. Run by Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership, it brings their expert partners from across the archive sector together to provide training and share opportunities with doctoral researchers. Rather than learning about one collection, participants will acquire the theoretical grounding and practical knowledge to begin to understand the logic of any archive collection they may encounter. While ideal for first year postgraduate researchers then, this session will be useful for any researcher who uses archives in their work.
Please see below for the latest version of the programme.
Attendance is limited and is on a first-come, first-served basis.
The event is open to all postgraduate researchers from the following universities, regardless of whether they are in receipt of Midlands3Cities funding:
- Birmingham City University
- University of Birmingham
- De Montfort University
- University of Leicester
- Nottingham Trent University
- University of Nottingham
- Coventry University
