London/Archives/Resources introduces students to people, archival materials, libraries and other resources available in London and about London as a centre for culture and performance. The module explores how you might interview live subjects, approach archives and archivists and use major research libraries and museums and research ethics for example. The seminars will guide you towards the choice of an independent research project. This project will explore an area of London, culture and performance of each student's choice and for which each student will be asked to find primary source material of the kind introduced to them on the module. You might, for example, carry out research at the V&A, Black Cultural Archives, Live Art Development Agency, Courtauld Institute of Art, Wellcome Collection, Tate Library and Archive Collections, National Theatre Archive, Shakespeare┬┐s Globe Theatre Library and Archive, and LIFT Living Archive.
