Archiving for the Future Conference
Archiving for the Future: using archives to enhance learning and teaching in drama and theatre studies
This event is being organised in conjunction with the Institute for Performing Arts Development at the University of East London and the CEDAR (Clustering and Enhancing Digital Archives for Research) project: a unique approach to clustering and enhancing digital theatre archives through a collaboration between UEL, Royal Holloway, Sheffield and Nottingham universities as well as Kings College, London.
The day will consist of a series of presentations of good practice in using digital archives with undergraduate and postgraduate students.
It will include an opportunity for delegates to experiment and reflect on the use of archives for their own practice.
The target audience for the event is: drama/theatre studies lecturers, researchers, theatre historians, digital and web-practitioners, archivists, library and learning support service staff.
Topics covered will include:
- The use of the East London Theatre Archive for undergraduate theatre students;
- The connection between archives and web-based platforms for learning;
- Making archives ‘living’ through the user-interface.
The event aims to provide an opportunity for the sharing of teaching pedagogies and an open forum for the discussion of methodological and other concerns.
