Researching the Colonial Archive: a Training Day

A Postgraduate and Early Career Researcher Training Day
Monday 27 June 2011
Victoria and Albert Museum, Kensington

With Isabel Hofmeyr (Witwatersrand), Satish Padiyar (Courtauld), Josephine McDonagh (King’s), Chris Breward (V&A), Anna Jackson (V&A), Sue Stronge (V&A) and Rosemary Crill (V&A)

This intensive event offers researchers working in eighteenth and nineteenth century subjects training in archival analysis and research methods. Designed around the excellent collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum the programme focuses on textual history, visual culture, and the methodological issues collection based research might raise: it also includes collection visits and experience with archival materials.

Refreshments and lunch will be provided; there will also be a small amount of preparatory reading required.

Applications to participate in the programme should include:
• a 300 word outline of your research (highlighting its relevance to the Commodities and Culture network research strands)
• a CV
and be sent to Alison Wood at by 5 May 2011.

A small number of bursaries for travel within the UK are available: if you would like to be considered, please say so in your application.
(N.B. Early Career Researchers should be within 3 years of receiving the PhD.)
