RLUK and The National Archives (TNA) are pleased to announce the four new Fellows for the Professional Fellowship Scheme 2022-23. After a very competitive application round, the four successful candidates will commence the work on their proposed projects in February 2022.
Professional Fellowships last for a year and are structured around short-term visits to TNA, for RLUK Fellows, and RLUK member institutions, for TNA Fellows, underpinned by a longer period of peer-to-peer mentoring and knowledge sharing. Professional Fellowships focus on a professional-practice question, contribute to a wider piece of work, and facilitate shared learning between TNA and individual RLUK members with the purpose of overcoming some of the collective challenges facing research and cultural organisations.
Below are the Fellows for 2022-23 and details on their projects, which investigate pressing issues around diversity and inclusion in cultural collections as well as the role of libraries and archives in addressing current societal concerns, such as climate change.
