Early modern archival research, impact, and cross-sectoral partnerships – what's involved?

Join an event that seeks to introduce early career researchers to ways of approaching partnership-based research.

This online event features speakers working on the AHRC-funded project ‘Pastoral Care, Literary Cure and Religious Dissent: Zones of Freedom in the British Atlantic c. 1630-1720’, including:

  • Miranda Lewis (Digital Editor)
  • Jo Sadgrove (Research Policy Adviser)
  • Alison Searle (Academic)
  • Emily Vine (Early Career Researcher)
  • Catherine Wakeling (Archivist)

This interdisciplinary research project is based at the School of English and includes collaborations with the Anglican mission organisation United Society Partners in the Gospel (USPG) and Early Modern Letters Online (EMLO) at the University of Oxford.

Each speaker will talk for 5 minutes about their approaches to, and experiences of, this form of collaborative research. The panel will flag some of the opportunities and challenges that partnership-based research focusing on early modern archives presents.

An open discussion will then be facilitated by SRS to allow participants the opportunity to ask questions, and discuss the benefits and complications of this type of research.
