Living on the Edge: Records of Suburbia. The Annual Conference of the British Records Association (BRA). 25th April 2019

 
Living on the Edge: Records of Suburbia.
The Annual Conference of the British Records Association (BRA).
 
Admired, taken for granted, dismissed - the suburbs provoke diverse reactions. This one day conference will explore the way in which the history of the suburbs, and those living in them, can be traced through our documentary heritage.

Speakers and panellists include Joanna Smith (Senior Investigator, Historic England), Sally Bevan (Senior Archivist, London Metropolitan Archives), James Ranahan (Collections Archivist, Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and Research Fellow, Suburban Birmingham Research Project), Professor Deborah Sugg Ryan (Professor of Design History and Theory, University of Portsmouth and author of Ideal Homes: Design, Architecture and Suburban Modernity in England, 1918-39), Sara Kinsey ( Head of Historical Archives, Nationwide Building Society), Rachel Freeman (Church of England Record Centre), Jessica Scantlebury (Mass Observation Archive) and Sally Gilbert (Merchant Taylors' School).
