This public study day is open to anyone with an interest in Glasgow's cultural history.
Come along and hear about different aspects of Glasgow's cultural history, and learn about the Glasgow City Archives from a variety of users from the Cultural History of Glasgow Research Network.
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.
Topics on the day will include the street history of Bridgeton, and park life in Glasgow. Learn about how to use different types of documents stored in the Glasgow City Archives, such as war-time concert programmes and historical documents about people. Contribute your own ideas to our graffiti wall – ‘Culture is …'
Places at this workshop are free of charge. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
Please book your place on the Eventbrite page for the Public Study Day for the Cultural History of Glasgow Research Network.
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.
