Family History & Academic History

The School of History is hosting a workshop for historians interested in family history and genealogy

Date: 14-07-2018

On Saturday 14 July 2018, we’ll be hosting a workshop at Leeds City Museum, entitled ‘Family history and academic history – the value of collaboration’. This will explore the ways in which family historians, genealogists, academic historians, archives and libraries can collaborate. These groups are not distinct – many people fall into a number of these categories. The workshop will consider how we can bring together different kinds of knowledge (about one’s own family, or a special social context) and different people across various groups and institutions.

Our programme includes historians from a wide range of backgrounds, including our own group of family historians, with whom we’ve been collaborating. Our keynote speaker is Tanya Evans (Macquarie University).

The workshop is now fully booked.
