Archivist, Cadbury Research Library: Special Collections, University of Birmingham
I have responsibility for the university’s own institutional archives which include records of its predecessor Mason Science College and of associated organisations including Westhill College and Selly Oak Colleges. My work involves cataloguing and managing these records but also supporting research using the university archives and encouraging student engagement with the university’s history. I am currently a member of the project committee for the AHRC funded project ‘The Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies: connected collaboration, connected communities and connected impact’ which is creating and cataloguing an archive documenting the research and activities of the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies, and support Dr Kieran Connell, the project research assistant. I am keen to work with researchers interested in any aspect of the university’s history.
