Centre for Archives and Records Research (ICARUS)
ICARUS seeks to support a vibrant research culture both
internally and in the archives and records management profession more widely.
To this end it supports and facilitates a number of avenues for the
dissemination and discussion of research in the field. These include;
- Jenkinson Lectures - A series of public lectures held roughly annually, which provide the opportunity to hear from leading thinkers and actors in the field.
- Archives and Society Seminars – This seminar series is held by the Institute of Historical Research. Members of ICARUS sit on the Convenors Committee, which arranges these seminars.
- The Cardigan Continuum – Members of ICARUS help to run the London branch of this informal archives and records management reading group.
- ICARUS Research Seminars – This is a primarily private seminar series designed as a space for discussion amongst academic staff, research associates and doctoral research students.”
ICARUS members have also helped to organise a number of recent conferences, including;
- FARMER/NAET Conference, Oxford, 5-6 July 2010 (Forum for Archives and Records Management Education and Research for the UK and Ireland and the Network of Archival Educators and Trainers (North Western Europe))
