Friday 30th October sees the launch of the Fürer-Haimendorf archive at the School of Oriental and Arfican Studies in London.
The day will include a seminar, 10am-5pm, and an evening launch event from 5pm-7pm.
The photographs of Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf are the world’s most comprehensive picture of tribal cultures in the himalayas and naga hills in the mid-twentieth century.
With this launch, they will be available to everyone on the web.
The uses of these photographs in contemporary fieldwork and the significance of digital archives will be discussed at the seminar.
More details about the project and the 25 projects that make up the Enriching Digital Resources programme can be found on the JISC webiste.
