UEA's Arts and Humanities Research Engagement Series brings the latest research and new ideas to audiences inside and outside the university on matters of great public interest.

Running annually in the spring, we invite the essential expert voices, from UEA and beyond, to tell you what you really need to know about the critical issues facing us all.


2022 series: Back to the Future: Arts in a Digital Age

The 2022 series, Back to the Future: Arts in a Digital Age, examined the impact of the digital age on key aspects of the Arts in the past, present and future. Through four events, we focused on museum and gallery curatorial practice, archives, the wider heritage industry, and the study of history.

Contributors included the Digital Director of The National Archives at Kew; the Head of Library Collections at the Society of Antiquaries of London; the Professor of Palaeography at Cambridge; the Head of Collections Care at the Tate; a museums specialist from Glasgow University; the Director of the Sainsbury Centre, and specialists from the Castle Museum and UEA.
