Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The Public Engagement Research Fellow will spend the equivalent of one month (can be worked flexibly) at Pennine Heritage conducting research into an area of our archives, which will then form the basis for a public engagement activity. Our archives have been under-studied in relation to the history of science, so the Fellow may be the first researcher to explore some of these collections. The Fellow will report to our Heritage Manager, who will provide training as required in archival research, object handling, exhibition production, digital content production, and schools programming. There is potential for research into several areas of our archives, including:
Research topics are not limited to this list, and we welcome applications which engage with other areas of our archives. If you are unsure whether our archives contain enough material for your proposed research topic, feel free to contact our Heritage Manager, Dr Francesca Elliott, at email@example.com and she will be happy to discuss your proposed topic.
Once appointed, the Fellow will work with our Heritage Manager to create a more detailed research plan, and to decide which type of public engagement output will best fit their research topic. Public engagement outputs could include: school learning packs, school group activity, online exhibition, online educational resource, in-person exhibition, short film, walking tour.
