“It's a very unstable society that we've built”: precarity, memory and history in UK DIY music spaces

Thursday 19 November 2020

An IPUP event. The impact of the covid-19 pandemic has been a sharp reminder of the precarity of the networks and spaces that nurture creative community. This presentation explores how intersections of precarity affect the ability to create, organise and share traces of individual or collective involvement in DIY music.

NHS Voices of Covid-19: Public History during a Pandemic

Thursday 29 October 2020

The NHS is part of everyday life in the UK and since 2017 NHS at 70, a national oral history project based at the University of Manchester and supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, has been recording the stories of people who have worked for and been treated by the NHS. This seminar will use the evidence gathered on the project to demonstrate the impact of the project in the context of public history.

Emotion in the Museum | Conference Programme

Friday 13 March 2020

**NB: This conference has been postponed.** For reasons connected with the continuing spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) and following the recent withdrawal of a significant number of speakers for this and other reasons, the organisers have reluctantly decided to postpone the Emotion in the Museum conference, which was due to take place in York on 13th & 14th March 2020. We are sorry for the difficulties that this will cause for delegates. As organisers of the event, we remain committed to the conference and will make every effort to hold this at a future date
