Dear all,

The Big Ideas series<> is a seminar series convened by and hosted at The National Archives throughout the academic year.

This year's theme title is 'Research Practices: Exploring methodologies for innovation and social change'. At this year's series, we will invite speakers from a range of disciplines to discuss their research practices with a focus on exploring the link between methodology and social impact. As well as unpacking research processes, we aim to highlight the opportunities and challenges that arise from a variety of innovative approaches to research.
The next Big Ideas will explore Participatory recordkeeping and the Rights in Records project. The seminar will take place on Thursday 1 November, 13:00 - 14:00, in the Events Space at The National Archives in Kew.

In this seminar, Dr Gregory Rolan will discuss his research on the various conceptual models that inform a new design of participatory recordkeeping systems. Gregory will discuss the application of these concepts in the 'Rights in Records by Design' project which is investigating the design of systems to support the recordkeeping rights of people who experience childhood out-of-home Care. These systems would enable children and young people in Care to have a greater say in their records, and Care-leavers to have greater control over the ongoing management, access, and use of their records.

The seminar is free to attend, but it is essential to book a place via here<>.

We hope to see you there,

Research Team
