This is the second in a series of workshops bringing together those researching any aspect of Glasgow’s cultural history.
If you are a local or family historian, research student, or experienced researcher, come along and find out how you can contribute to this project.
The Cultural History of Glasgow Research Network is an interactive network of scholars, without barrier to discipline or research experience, who use the Glasgow City Archives to research any aspect of the city’s cultural history, with a particular slant towards music.
This workshop will continue to explore the broad themes proposed in Workshop 1: ‘Global Glasgow’ and ‘For the People’. Members who attended the first workshop suggested some topics within each of these themes.
For ‘Global Glasgow’ the topics include: the industrial impact of Glasgow on the world; migration to Glasgow; history of buildings in Glasgow; William McFarlane industrial architects. Under ‘For the People’ we suggest: culture for the people; City/ Burgh Council policies.
These topics and themes can include a wide range of subjects, so please bring along some of your archival research and contribute to our discussions. We’ll help you develop your research and presentation skills and consider possible collaborations between members so that we can start to shape the programme for November’s Public Study Day.
For new members there will be an opportunity to give a 3-minute snapshot presentation about your own use of the Archives and the project you’re working on.
Places at this workshop are free of charge. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
Please book your place by emailing Carol.Raeside@open.ac.uk
Workshop 3 will take place on Saturday 28 September 2019.
The Cultural History of Glasgow research network is funded by the Royal Society of Edinburgh until December 2020.
It is a collaborative project between The Open University in Scotland and Glasgow City Archives.
