Music in the Archives
22 November, 2019, 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This interactive pop-up exhibition delves into the hidden treasures of the University of Surrey Library to explore the secret worlds that live amongst its stacks and shelves.
The exhibition uses its title ‘Music in the Archives’ as a prompt to academic, librarian and archivist scholars whose research correlates with the humanities. Invited scholars at multiple career stages will contribute to this event and consider how their research intersects with ‘Discoveries and Secrets’, the theme of the Being Human Festival 2019.
A multiplicity of material, visual and auditory approaches will be used to deliver an interactive pop-up exhibition that is fully accessible and inclusive. As a safe and welcoming space, the library exhibition offers visitors an informal introduction to research while demonstrating its relevance to our day to day lives, and the importance of its real-world application without losing any of its critical potency.
Come on a journey to discover the secret worlds of archives, historical fiction, libraries, activist poetry, medieval instruments, Learning Development, Hip-Hop, gender, Cartoneras and much more.
