Family Archives and their Afterlives, 1400-present

Date / time: 27 June - 28 June, 9:30 am - 4:30 pm


From the muniments rooms of country estates to boxes of papers under the bed: our homes are sites of intergenerational curation. We act as archivists, deciding which materials to keep, both for ourselves and future generations. This conference explores the family archive, in all its forms, from the medieval period to the present day.

This conference will take place in-person at the University of Birmingham. For more information/programme and to register visit:
