ANZAMEMS members and friends are invited to Beyond the Book: Transforming the Early Modern Archive, a free two-day symposium to be hosted by State Library Victoria, on 10-11 August, 2023.
Join digital designers, specialist librarians and early modern scholars to explore how traditional archival scholarship and emerging digital technologies can combine to bring materials from the past to new audiences.
This event will celebrate the culmination of the ARC Linkage Grant project Transforming the Early Modern Archive: The John Emmerson Collection at State Library Victoria and will launch its digital exhibition, Beyond the Book: A digital journey through the treasures of the Emmerson Collection.
Register here to attend in person, watch via livestream, or access recordings afterwards.
ANU’s Centre for Early Modern Studies is offering 10 bursaries of $500 AUD to enable HDR students to attend in person. Applications can be made here.
