Virtual Methodologies for Early Career Researchers

Book your place here.

Are you an MA or PhD student or a postdoctoral researcher re-evaluating your research goals this summer? Join experienced researchers and staff from Wellcome Collection as we expand our horizons of actionable methodologies in the face of restricted travel and temporary closures.

During this online workshop you will hear from three research groups based in Europe and the UK working with manuscripts, early printed books, and visual material. Sharing methodological perspectives on digitally accessible collections, our first hour will include presentations and discussion centring a proactive approach to our current challenges. After a short break we will re-convene to learn from Wellcome Collection’s in-house collections specialists about creative ways to navigate and discover the collections that are accessible during COVID-19 closures. Come with your questions and research quandaries!

We encourage participants who are new to Wellcome Collection and those already conducting research with our collections to attend. Collection materials discussed will be in European vernaculars and Latin, however no specific language skills are required for participation. The spoken language of the workshop is English.

Reserve your virtual seat at the table, space is limited. You will receive a joining link 24 hours ahead of the workshop. The workshop will be convened through BlueJeans (no download required) and closed captions are available.
