Janette Harley Prize 2022 Open for Entries

Entry to the 2022 Janette Harley Prize is now open. The prize is intended to generate interest in archives, and raise awareness of research and achievements in the world of archives.

The prizewinner in 2021 was Dr Amy L Erickson, Robinson College, Cambridge, for City Women in the 18th Century, a free open-air exhibition in autumn 2019 about women who ran luxury businesses in the City of London in the 18th century; and a supporting article, ‘Esther Sleepe, fanmaker, and her family’, Eighteenth-Century Life, 42 (2) (2018), pp.15-37.

The closing date for entries to the 2022 Janette Harley Prize is 31 July. The winning entry will be announced in November. We hope to hold the Prizegiving at the same time as the BRA’s annual Maurice Bond Memorial Lecture, early in 2023.
