How Do I Start? Where Do I Go Next? BQSG Advanced Research Day

This event takes place on 7th September 2019 from 10:30am to 4:00pm and will take place at John Woolman Room, Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London. It is a Guild event being organised by BQSG, .

This is a full day workshop on how to begin your quilt history research and then follow a research path. The session is suitable for those who wish to start on their chosen topic or have already embarked on research. It will include a discussion on how to uncover more about the topic you are interested in, establish your research question and consider where to go to discover extra information.

There will be a practical session on the use of online resources such as The British Newspaper Archive, London Lives, and genealogical databases and will include tips on recording, storing, organising, analysing and presenting data.

Advice on preparing abstracts for submission to a seminar and writing a research paper including referencing will be covered.  Each attendee will have time to talk about their own work using PowerPoint or from written notes and images and get support, advice and feedback from other attendees.

The study day will be led by Dr Bridget Long, Visiting Research Fellow in History, University of Hertfordshire and Chair of BQSG Research Panel and Anne Jeater, past Chair of BQSG
