PaxCat Tales at Beyond the Fringe

I’ll be sharing what I’ve learned from the PaxCat experience at a conference later this month.

My talk, PaxCat Tales: the pleasures and pitfalls of bringing peace archives to life, is part of Beyond the Fringe on 29 November at the Bishopgate Institute.   Organised by the British Records Association, the event looks at the issues involved in collecting pressure group archives.  These are incredibly rewarding, rich collections for researchers and communities (as this blog I hope shows).  But collecting and managing them can be difficult.  I’m really looking forward to hearing the other speakers, who’ll be discussing lesbian and gay history, political archives, and zines, among other things.  I’ll put my presentation online in due course.
