Bringing science and scientists to historians and the public through their own vibrant personal voices and testimony.
Join us for this two-day event which will be of interest to historians, biographers, archive and library professionals and those involved in science communication for exhibition, television and radio.
From oral history to collegial obituary, from witness seminar to ‘personal information files’, scientists are complementing the legacy and understanding of their work with more personal and in-depth records. Some of these are
developed with oral historians and others by scientific peers: how is this important material created and framed intellectually, as well as used by historians in conjunction with paper archives and scientific publications?
