Public History Group 25th April
Negotiating control in the construction of the mental health recovery archive
Dr Anna Sexton from University College London
The penultimate session for the public history group in this academic year will focus on archives. The mental health recovery archive can be accessed here. It contains personal testimony and expressions of identity from four contributors who have lived experience of mental health recovery. In this talk Anna Sexton will share her experiences of being the archivist and PhD researcher who instigated the project with reflections on what she perceived to be the challenges of sharing authority and developing reciprocity in the construction of the archive.
As usual, all welcome. We meet for coffee at 11 and start promptly at 11.30 in the Institute of Archaeology, UCL , 31-34 Gordon Square, WC1H 0PY
