Theories and Practices of the Archive

Applications are invited from postgraduates (Masters and early PhD level) at universities in the UK and the Republic of Ireland for a fully-funded week-long course at the Deutsches Literatur­archiv (DLA), Marbach. This course, the first of its kind to offer collaboration between Marbach and UK postgraduates, will facilitate the development of personal research projects whilst addressing core theories about the nature of archives. Alongside a programme of themed seminars, participants will be introduced to Marbach’s holdings and museums, and will be given the opportunity to conduct and present their own work at the DLA. The course aims to augment postgraduate research training and disciplinary awareness, to provide access to a unique set of resources, and to foster links both among participants and between the participants and the archive.
