BISR Methods Workshop: Black Cultural Archives

Friday 16 December | 2.00-4.30pm | Black Cultural Archives 1 Windrush Square, Brixton London SW2 1EF

Black Cultural Archives (BCA) is a national institution dedicated to collecting, preserving and celebrating the histories of diverse people of African and Caribbean descent in Britain.

Their unparalleled and growing archive collection is drawn primarily from the twentieth century to the present day, but some materials date as far back as the second century. The collection includes personal papers, organisational records, rare books, ephemera, photographs, and a small object collection.

At this Workshop, which will be held at the BCA and run by Victoria Northridge, the Collections Manager, you will learn about:

  • On line archive tools
  • BCA collection on line
  • How to work with archives in relation to the research question
  • Issues of copyright, data protection, and plagiarism
  • Physical exploration of archive material at BCA

This is a free workshop for Birkbeck students and academic staff but places are limited, so please only register if you intend to attend.
