This is a great opportunity for PhD students to gain experience of the possibilities of working with archives and collections.
Hidden Collections: From Archive to Asset
Over the Course of the 2012/13 academic year this AHRC-funded programme is offering postgraduate research students a unique opportunity to develop skills in reinterpreting archival material (Image, Object, Performance and Theatre, Corpora and Film) in the context of digitisation and widening access to such material through strategies of public engagement.
Participants will gain hands-on experience of putting these skills into practice in collaboration with prestigious external partners. The programme is open to postgraduate research students from the Arts and Humanities. Application opens on 30th August and closes on 20th September at 5:00pm . There will be 30 subsidised places.
