Conference programme now available for ‘History and Archives in Practice, 2024’ in Cardiff

3 March 2024

The programme for this year’s ‘History and Archives in Practice’ day conference (HAP24) which takes place on Wednesday 6 March 2024 at Cardiff University, is now available.

HAP is an annual gathering of historians and archivists to explore new projects, practices and collections. The conference is run jointly by the Royal Historical Society, Institute of Historical Research and The National Archives. This year, HAP24 is partnering with historians and archivists at Cardiff University, where the event will be held.

Our theme for HAP24 is ‘Historical Legacies’. The day combines panels, interactive sessions and collection demonstrations from over 15 projects, UK-wide, involving historians and archivists working collaboratively.

HAP24 provides opportunities to reflect on archival and historical legacies — of people, places, and practice; historical, physical, and digital. This year, we consider questions of value, loss, preservation, access and the opportunities and challenges we face as historians and archivists in preserving histories and collections. HAP24 is now fully booked and we look forward to welcoming those attending in Cardiff on Wednesday 6 March.
