Event description

Description

Learn about the history of the diary: why people write diaries and how diaries can act as a springboard to exploring some of the 21st century’s most pressing questions, including how do we identify, understand and portray aspects of ourselves.

The Great Diary Project rescues, archives and makes publicly available a growing collection of more than 8,500 diaries housed at Bishopsgate Institute, London.

Join two extraordinary diarists and the Project’s Director Dr. Polly North for a revealing exploration and sharing of this remarkable archive.
