Special Collections Workshop- Romany Collections
Tue 21 February 2017, 12:30 – 14:30 GMT
Discover new funding and research opportunities available through the outstanding archive collections at the University of Leeds.
Explore the richness of our archive collections, be the first to hear about Brotherton Fellowships and other new funding opportunities, meet expert archivists, network with external partners, and hear from researchers who have successfully used archive collections as the basis for interdisciplinary research.
This series of participatory Special Collections Workshops is open to academics and research support staff from any discipline. Through facilitated discussions, you will be encouraged to generate new research ideas, which may form the basis of innovative or interdisciplinary research proposals.
Join us for a unique opportunity to explore the Romany Collection which was awarded Designation status in 2005, in recognition of its comprehensive and outstanding content. Presentations from Leeds GATE (Gypsy and Traveller Exchange) and Special Collections staff will help participants to explore how materials in this collection hold significance for exploring a wide range of contemporary research issues including migration, race, identity, culture and society. The workshop will include details of the Brotherton Fellowship available for working with this collection.
