Booking is now open for the first of a series of workshops designed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the National Union of Students (NUS), as well as to more broadly explore the theoretical and methodological issues associated with undertaking research into student histories. This event focuses on the archive. It will include presentations by those who work with the NUS archive, as well as research papers exploring key theoretical and methodological issues related to using these archival holdings. Talks include:

  • Introduction to the NUS archive (Mike Day, official archivist of the NUS and author of NUS 90: A History of the National Union of Students)
  • NUS archival holdings at the Modern Records Centre (Dr Charlotte Berry, Archives Manager Modern Records Centre)
  • Solving the Problem of Student Voice’s Absence from the History of Higher Education (Kathryn Woods, Dean of Students Goldsmiths’ College, University of London)
  • Critical Archive Studies in the National Union of Students archives: a methodology for the study of ‘race’ in social movements and union organisations (Carlus Hudson, PhD candidate University of Portsmouth)
