Histories of Activism: Tracing Lives Beyond Borders Workshop, May 13

The ‘Histories of Activism’ research group at Northumbria University is delighted to host a half-day training workshop on ‘Tracing Lives Beyond Borders’, taking place on Friday 13 May. Please take a look at the attached programme.

·         The event is organised by three PhD students from the Histories of Activism research group – Jasmine Calver, Lara Green and Sophie Roberts. They will start off the workshop with brief case studies drawn from their own doctoral projects.

·         Matt Perry (Newcastle University) and Charlotte Alston (Northumbria University) will discuss the ‘challenges of biography’ with regard to monographs that they’ve written.

·         There will be research papers from Niall Whelehan (Edinburgh University) and Brian Ward (Northumbria University).

·         Three colleagues from Durham University (James Koranyi, Tom Stammers and André Keil) will facilitate break-out sessions for the participants.

·         Christophe Verbruggen – a historian from Ghent University – will give a keynote lecture on the way in which digital resources can be used to uncover and map transnational trajectories. He’s the director of the Ghent Institute of Digital Humanities and the chair of Flemish contribution to the European DARIAH initiative (Digital Research Infrastructure for the Arts and Humanities).

The event is free, but participants should register via https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/tracing-lives-beyond-borders-postgraduate-workshop-tickets-24588608189 by 6 May at the latest.
