Public History Group 25th April

2015 April 14

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
