MRC events and series

Events and series

The Modern Records Centre sponsors a range of one-off events and regular series throughout the year.


Community Speaker Series

The Community Speakers Series offers an opportunity for community members, independent scholars, academics, and students to come together to discuss a topic of importance or interest to the local community. Each talk will be accompanied by an interactive exhibition of related archival material held at the MRC.

Open Education Series

The Open Education Series is a monthly series of events organized by students at the University of Warwick on topics that have been mostly excluded or challenge the Eurocentric academic curriculum. The series utilises the resources of the MRC, a unique archive housing primary sources on modern British social, political and economic history and will allow for attendees to engage with original source material.

Archives Alive

A project that involved working with local schools to develop pupils' research skills and encourage them to engage with primary sources.
