The first full-day training session will take place at King’s College London Archives on 29th October, 10-4 pm.
The session will include a critical exploration of historical medical vocabularies from Dr Andrea Tanner of the Institute of Historical Research, who helped develop the Historic Hospitals Admissions Register Project (http://www.hharp.org). Dr Tanner will explain how the project team mapped 19th century disease terms to modern vocabularies to improve access to the research data.
This will be followed by a session delivered by public engagement trainer, Ken Norman, of New Tricks, on ‘how to organise an effective focus group’.
The session will conclude with a contribution from Melissa Terras, Director of the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities, who will be talking about the successful promotion of research through the use of blogs: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/dis/people/melissaterras
