Nikki Tomkins, OCC conservator, will give an illustrated talk in the Unlocking Archives series about her work for Balliol this past year, repairing early printed books as part of the Reconstructing Nicholas Crouch project. A preview is available via her blog posts. See Historic Collections @Balliol for more about the Wellcome Trust–funded Crouch project.
All welcome! These talks are open to the public. Feel free to bring your lunch. There will be time for questions and discussion after the talk, and an opportunity to take a closer look at some of the Balliol special collections material discussed.
Unlocking Archives, now in its fifth year, is an interdisciplinary graduate seminar series of illustrated lunchtime talks about current research in Balliol College’s historic collections: archives, manuscripts and early printed books, and the connections between them.
Talks take place at 1pm in Balliol’s Historic Collections Centre in St Cross Church, Holywell. St Cross is next door to Holywell Manor and across the road from the English & Law faculties on Manor Road; see Finding Us.
