Archives: what you need to know as a PGR
December 1 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
This session is designed to cover the ropes of using archives during your PhD, allowing you to make the most of your archival research, both now and in the future.
We’ll cover four principal topics: an introduction to some useful theory about the archive and its holdings; preparing for the trip(s) to the archives; working onsite, including taking good notes and photos; and how to use the sources you’ve gathered, both in your PhD and further down the line. At the end of the session, there will also be time for Q+A’s.
I am a theatre historian working on the longer French Revolutionary period (c. 1789-1815). Archival research in France and the UK was a central part of my AHRC-funded PhD and as a postdoc I worked on a digital humanities project that drew on the holdings of French, Belgian, Italian, and German archives.
