Royal Pavilion & Museums’ Dr Alexandra Loske and Kevin Bacon will discuss ongoing work on digitising the Royal Pavilion Archive, and making it accessible beyond the researcher bubble. This will be a chance to learn more about the history of Brighton’s most famous building, find out about the Royal Pavilion & Museum’s digital ambitions, and discuss the challenges of turning data into historical narratives.

This MA Masterclass is organised by the CLHLWR in collaboration with the School of Media, Film and Music, University of Sussex.
