Consuming the Past: Library Resources for PGRs, An Interdisciplinary Conference and Training Day, Monday 28th June 2010

updated: 
Wednesday, February 24, 2010 - 8:09am
full name / name of organization: 
Durham, Newcastle and Northumbria Universities

As researchers we 'consume' texts, reading, interpreting and reusing material found in archives or specialist electronic resources. Libraries are a key tool in this process. Library-based research is no longer restricted to the book, but also encompasses archived materials, electronic databases and local resources. This conference provides an opportunity to explore both the practical and theoretical issues arising from attempts to understand the past: training sessions will investigate the use of archival resources in the Arts and Humanities whilst panellists will also consider how texts themselves conceptualise and appropriate the past.
