Literary Archives in the Digital Age
Friday, 7 July – Saturday, 8 July 2017
A two day conference organised by the School of English.
In recent decades there has been a gradual yet dramatic shift in the means by which scholars engage with literary archives, as the widespread digitization of manuscript texts and the comprehensive shift to digital research tools has changed the nature of scholarly routes into archival material. There has also been a simultaneous shift within archives themselves, as the increasing prevalence of born-digital works necessitates radical changes in methods of curation and preservation.
“Literary Archives in the Digital Age” aims to gather scholars together in order to consider these changes; the conference aims both to showcase contemporary archival research and to reflect on the opportunities and challenges presented by 21st-century archival study.
