Gina Pierce

The Archive is a key research tool and output for practitioners, art, design and architectural researchers. In this seminar Cass researchers Gina Pierce and Sue Andrews will present their work which has related to archival research, or is concerned with the creation of archives as a research process.

An archive tells stories through objects. The past has a relevance today that can be explored through seeing original drawings, furniture, photographs and samples. The Parker Knoll archive has all this, and is here in our building ready to be unboxed. It even has something to say about Brexit…

**CALL FOR PAPERS OPEN** Please contact seminar convenor Jane Clossick if you would like to present as part of this seminar. This call is open to any researcher in a creative field who would like to discuss the role that archives have played in their research or research production.

About Cass Research Seminars

Cass Research Seminars are a series of public conversations which enable researchers to test and present their ideas in conversation with peers and a broader audience. The sessions seek cross-fertilisation of ideas and provoke discussion. Typically, they consist of two to three presentations of 15 minutes each followed by chaired discussion.

We had a productive year in 2017/18. Presenters found that the session deepened their work and added unexpected avenues to their thinking. All are welcome at Cass Research Seminars, both from inside and outside The Cass. For more information email and follow us on Twitter for the latest information @CassResearch
