March 22 @ 9:00 am5:00 pm GMT

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on March 24, 2022 at 9:00 am

The National Archives holds one of the largest collections in the world, containing over 11 million historical government and public records

This workshop is designed to develop the knowledge and experience of students undertaking research in material culture, and in particular through the use of visual sources.

Students will learn about the different kinds of records held at The National Archives which can be particularly useful sources for material culture research. These comprise designs, images registered for copyright protection, and other artwork, graphic design and photographs produced or collected by government departments.

Their specialists will guide students through the history and structure of the different collections and explain how best to search and browse the online catalogue to find useful results. Students will also learn how to move between indexes and registers to find specific relevant material.

Attendance options

The National Archives is offering hybrid attendance options for its programme of PAST Skills and Methodology workshops in 2022. This workshop, focusing on visual sources, can be attended at two levels:

  • Online-only workshop: Day 1 (online) only
  • Full hybrid workshop: Day 1 (online) and Day 2 (on site at The National Archives)

Each day is a full-day workshop, running roughly from 9am to 5pm. Exact timings for the programme will be confirmed and published on this page a week before the workshop.

This event is aimed at current taught postgraduate and PhD students, but other researchers are welcome. Please get in touch if you fall outside these categories and would like to attend.
