Unlocking Archives 2017
Announcing the 5th year of Unlocking Archives talks! Yes, it’s already been four years and 25 events. Dates for Hilary Term 2017:
9 February (Thursday of 4th week) Monica Kendall: ‘Your Dear youths’: schoolboy letters of the 1780s and a strange link to the Brontës
27 February (Monday of 7th week) Giles Dawson: Celebrating George Malcolm – a centenary exhibition
9 March (Thursday of 8th week) Lucy Kelsall: Cataloguing Nicholas Crouch – an early modern private collection in Balliol Library
Unlocking Archives is an interdisciplinary graduate seminar series of illustrated lunchtime talks about current research in Balliol College’s historic collections: archives, manuscripts and early printed books, and the connections between them.
All talks will take place at 1pm in Balliol’s Historic Collections Centre in St Cross Church, Holywell. St Cross is next door to Holywell Manor and across the road from the English & Law faculties on Manor Road; see ‘Finding Us’.
All welcome! These talks are open to the public. Feel free to bring your lunch. The talks will last about half an hour, to allow time for questions and discussion afterwards, and a closer look at some of the Balliol special collections material discussed.
