The School has an exciting opportunity to get involved in a national project showcasing the history of the Age of Revolutions.
As part of the national Age of Revolutions project, the University’s team are organising an exhibition at the Studio 3 Gallery on campus entitled ‘Beyond the Barricade’ (Sept-Nov 2018) that looks at the art of revolution. Part of this exhibition will document historic revolutionary activity in Canterbury and Kent, and Dr Ben Marsh, the project’s organiser, would like to invite anyone interested to contribute to this effort.
The team are looking for any volunteers to help contribute to a short section of the pamphlet that will accompany the exhibition, presenting the history of riots and protests in our local area. This will involve working with the Special Collections team in the Library and the Cathedral Archives and Library over the next six weeks. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in expanding their experience of archival research, and to contribute to a national historic project that is expanding the public’s knowledge of our revolutionary and rebellious past.
If you are interested in taking part in this project, please contact Dr Marsh (B.J.Marsh@kent.ac.uk).
