Digital Humanities seminar series. Pip Willcox (The National Archives):"For Everyone: The Participatory Archive". Join us for drinks and nibbles following the paper!

As Head of Research, Pip leads on research strategy and delivery at The National Archives (TNA) and heads the department of Research and Academic Engagement. This multidisciplinary team conducts and enables interdisciplinary research across TNA and with a range of external partners. With a background in digital scholarship and library and archive collections, Pip has designed and delivered collaborative research in fields including Web Science, digital musicology, history, and heritage collections, engaging national and international partners from academia, industry and public audiences. She has developed strategies and networks to share tools, collections, and expertise in digital scholarship, and designed and delivered undergraduate and postgraduate teaching at foundational and advanced levels.


Abstract

The National Archives (TNA) launched its four-year strategy in 2019, Archives for Everyone. In it we share our belief that TNA is an essential resource for our democracy, a public good, and an asset for future generations. As we become the inclusive, entrepreneurial and disruptive archive, we adapt, rethink and reshape our practice to meet contemporary and future challenges.


What does this mean for research at the Archives? How can we most effectively use our resources to further knowledge of the archive and archival practice in ways that include our audiences? Through the lens of current work, this talk will suggest some answers and seek a conversation about how TNA can best partner with digital humanities communities.
