Book now for Gerald Aylmer Seminar 2019: Digital and the Archive
We are pleased to announce that registration is now open for this year’s Gerald Aylmer Seminar, which will be hosted at The National Archives.
Jointly convened by the Institute of Historical Research, the Royal Historical Society and The National Archives, the event will take place on 22 February 2019.
This year’s seminar will focus on the theme of ‘Digital and the Archive’. Speakers will consider the impact of digital technology on archives and historical research. The event will be a chance to raise and debate digital problems, and discuss how the academic and archive sectors can address these issues together.
The event will bring together speakers from both the archives and higher education sectors. The keynote conversation will be led by Alice Prochaska (former head librarian at Yale University and Principal of Somerville College, Oxford), Jane Winters (School of Advanced Studies, University of London) and John Sheridan (The National Archives).
The event is free to attend but registration in advance is required. Book your place.
