Making History: archive placement project exhibition

Discover what History postgraduate students are uncovering during their Archive Placement course.

This exhibition is a chance to hear about the students' work, find out about the placement scheme, and learn more about how History students are helping archives to make the most of their fabulous material.

Our stands this year will include the history and collections of Leeds Central Library, Special Collections’ in the University of Leeds, and West Yorkshire Archives. You’ll be able to find out about the recently acquired Aracdia group collection, life on the home front in the Second World War, theatre history. and Leeds suffragettes.

The session is informal, so you can drop in for as little or as long as you want to talk to our students and see examples of what they are working with.

You can book online at Eventbrite.

The event will be held in the new Bedford Room in Special Collections in the Brotherton Library.
