BRA AGM AND BOND LECTURE
We are delighted to announce that this year’s Bond Lecture will be ‘Trying To See The Forest For The Trees: Research in the digital age’ by Dr Anthea Seles. The lecture will follow BRA’s Annual General Meeting which will be held at The Postal Museum, 15-20 Phoenix Place, London WC1X 0DA.
Dr Seles is Secretary General of the International Council on Archives. Prior to that she worked as the Digital Records and Transfer Manager at The National Archives and tested early approaches to automating the appraisal and selection of government records. She holds a Doctorate from University College London (2016) and a Masters Degree in Archival Studies from the University of British Columbia (2003).
The Lecture will be followed by a drinks reception at which the winner of the inaugural Janette Harley Prize will be announced. Places are strictly limited and we would be grateful if those intending to attend could notify the Secretary firstname.lastname@example.org.
