Unlocking the Archive

Activity: Other activity typesOther


Along with colleagues in the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing, I run 'Unlocking the Archive': a partnership between UEA and the Norfolk Heritage Centre and Blickling Estate (National Trust), and in collaboration with Darren Leader Studio (Norwich). The UTA project was established in 2015 with the aim of increasing public awareness and appreciation of the wonderful collection of Renaissance books held in the Norfolk Heritage Centre in the centre of Norwich – one of the city’s greatest, but least-known, cultural treasures. Over the past few years, we have worked closely with librarians at the NHC to develop a series of ongoing initiatives to show the different ways in which these publicly-owned books can still be living sources of inspiration and use today, and in 2018 we formed a new partnership with the National Trust's Blickling Estate, based around their incredible library of 12,500 early-modern books.
