Join us on 22nd February for our second seminar in the ‘Difficult Pasts and Objects’ series:
(Searchlight Archive, University of Northampton)
‘Archiving the Extreme:
Cataloguing Far-Right Hate and Public History’
The University of Northampton has a large holding of anti-fascist and far right material, based around their large Searchlight Archive, which has been gradually made available since it came into being in 2012. The collection’s archivist, Dan Jones, looks at some of the problems that have been faced in making this material available for study as part of our shared public history, and how the University has tried to make best use of the material for education.
