Archives of crisis and conspiracy: the digital future

The next webinar in our IHR partnership ‘Shock of the Record’ series will be held on 31st March, 6.00-7.30pm, on ‘Archives of Crisis and Conspiracy: the Digital Future’. It will consider how memory institutions and other organisations conduct rapid response archiving to capture the digital records of crisis, how they decide what to include and exclude, and how and when those born-digital archives should be made available to researchers and the wider public. It will also consider how huge digital archives, which may contain multiple forms of misinformation, can be effectively described and contextualised when close reading and cataloguing are not possible.

A place can be booked, free of charge on the IHR’s website.
