The Archive is a key research tool.
The Archive is a key research tool and output for practitioners, art, design and architectural researchers. In this seminar Cass researchers Gina Pierce and Sue Andrews will present their work which has related to archival research, or is concerned with the creation of archives as a research process.

All are welcome at Cass Research Seminars, both from inside and outside The Cass. For more information email Jane Clossick at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow us on Twitter for the latest information @CassResearch
