“Time Travel for Beginners” – York’s archival history at the Borthwick with Gary Brannan
The Borthwick Institute for Archives at the University of York is one of the largest archive services outside of London. Home to hundreds of individual archives spanning nearly 1,000 years of our documentary past, the Borthwick has a particular specialism in collecting archives related to faith, belief, and the reactions to it.
How does an archive such as this work to document the world today? How are expectations around access to information changing?
And in an age where truth – and especially the truth of official record – is an ever more contested concept, how do archives respond?
Gary Brannan is Keeper of Archives and Special Collections at the Borthwick Institute for Archives at the University of York. An archivist for over 15 years, Gary’s previous specialisms in the archive sector include online and social media engagement, access services, digital preservation and archival skills training.
Start time 7:30pm onwards
