The UEA Faculty of Arts and Humanities is running a new research series, Back to the Future: Arts in a Digital Age
between 10 May – 7 June 2022. All events are free, open to all, and will take place at Norwich Castle. More information on the series and registration page is available here
The events seek to examine the impact of the digital age on key aspects of the arts in the past, present, and future. Through four fascinating events, the effects on museum and gallery curatorial practice, archives, the wider heritage industry, and the study of history, will be explored.
Contributors include the Digital Director of The National Archives at Kew; the Head of Library Collections at the Society of Antiquaries of London; the Professor of Palaeography at Cambridge; the Head of Collections Care at the Tate; a museums specialist from Glasgow University; the Director of the Sainsbury Centre, and specialists from the Castle Museum and UEA.
Given the focus of this series and the fit with the Eastern Arc thematic priority of Culture, Connection and Creativity, we are supporting it by making a small number of travel bursaries available for colleagues from Essex and Kent wishing to attend the event.
If you would like to apply for one of these, contact us with your details.
