Ushaw Lectures Series

The Ushaw Lecture Series celebrates the cultural and research significance of the remarkable bibliographical, archival and material-cultural collections of the collections that form part of the Durham Residential Research Library, and the wider history of which they are expressions.

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 ResearchDurham photo

On the train home after the fantastic #DurhamRRL conference with lots to think about; thanks to @ResearchDurham, @IMEMSDurham and all the presenters!
