Overview

The Archives programme from University of Liverpool provides a rigorous overview of the current state of scholarship in your selected field, guides you, through a programme of directed, individualised reading, to the selection of a feasible research project, and allows you to complete a substantial piece of research.

Why Archives and Records?

Academic staff working in the research area of archive studies have extensive professional experience with strong international links as well as academic expertise. Their research interests range from medieval record keeping to contemporary public policy and open government.

Archive Studies is located in the department of History and the School of Histories, Languages and Cultures. Recent conferences and workshops on recordkeeping topics have included ‘The Local Record Office, past, present and future’, ‘Archives and Deaf Communities’, ‘Time in the Archives’, and an international conference on ‘Records, archives and technology: interdependence over time’.
