The collections in and around Durham provide rich resources for research across a wide range of disciplines. There are particularly extensive and significant materials relevant for subjects such as theology and religion, politics, music, the history of the book, visual and performance culture and ritual, world cultures, and the history of the north east. As well as these areas there are also sources for the study of natural sciences, mathematics, art history, architecture, geography and exploration, literature, philosophy, continental history, and the history of education.
I greatly enjoyed the panels I saw at @ResearchDurham conf the past two days. @ElizabethCBiggs discussed an interesting copy of the Malleus Maleficarum held at Durham, while @EilishGregory revealed the extent of letters/material held at Ushaw concerning 18thC recusancy in Britain
Had a fantastic time at @ResearchDurham conference in Durham. Was great to see familiar faces and meet new ones and to hear a vast array of papers across a long time period. I will probably try and sum up a few papers I heard tomorrow. Until then: https://t.co/xcdF6Debtu
