The Mass Observation Archive supports a wide range of academic disciplines for teaching and research within the University of Sussex and other institutions. From Sociology and History to Media, English and Art & Design, our unique record of everyday life in Britain continues to be a valuable resource to support learning within Higher Education.
In consultation with teaching staff we can support taught courses with hands-on sessions using original archive material at The Keep.
Our staff team can also lead training sessions on archive research skills; using the collection to help students and staff understand and find relevant resources to support their learning, teaching and research.
Group Visits to The Keep
We deliver sessions in our meeting rooms here at The Keep, which can accommodate both small and large groups and include AV equipment.
We encourage teaching staff to get in touch to discuss and arrange sessions. Our staff team have specialist knowledge in the collection and can assist in the provision of a tailored visit.
A group visit will provide opportunities to increase knowledge and understanding in the role of using original material for research.
We are also happy to meet with teaching staff to discuss the development of modules and assignments using the Archive.
