Humanities postgraduates, come and join us the Humanities Research Fair on Friday 29 November 2019, 3-5pm, Exam Schools.
The Fair is an excellent opportunity for you to gain a wider perspective on the wealth and riches of research sources available for your field of study.
At the Fair you can learn about resources you may not yet have yet considered and meet the curators of collections who can guide you towards relevant material or useful finding tools. Over 40 stalls will cover many areas:
- Special collections (archives & early printed books, maps, museums)
- Topical stalls (e.g. resources for English literature, Theology, History, Modern Languages, Biography)
- Geographical stalls (e.g. US studies, Latin American, Far & Near Eastern, European)
- General resources (e.g. Information skills, Open Access, Digital Humanities, Top 10 Tips from a Graduate)
The format of the Fair encourages you to explore and discover new materials at your own pace, to be curious, to network and to make connections to experts and their peers while also learning about creative use of sources in Digital Humanities.
More details of contributors will be publicised in due course.
A series of 15 minutes talks will accompany the Fair. They will cover topics such as
- TORCH: an introduction to interdiscplinary reseach in the Humanities
- Gale Cengage’s Digital Scholar Lab
- Text Encoding Initiatives (TEI) the Humanities
- Top 10 Tips from Graduates
