Exploring Diasporic Archives

The Leverhulme Trust has awarded a grant of £124,201 to the University of Reading for a project exploring literary archives: “Diasporic Literary Archives: Questions of Location, Ownership and Interpretation.”

The project is led by the University of Reading with network partners including the Beinecke Library, (Yale University), Institut Mémoires de l’Édition Contemporaine (IMEC), Centro di Ricerca sulla Tradizione Manoscritta di Autori Moderni e Contemporanei, Pavia, National Library and Archives Service of Namibia, and University of Trinidad and Tobago.

The project, which will take place between January 2012 and December 2014, will create an international network to investigate issues and practices relating to the location, ownership and interpretation of literary archives.
