The exhibition space at the Modern Records Centre

Current exhibition:

Due to the current university-wide shut down, the Modern Records Centre's exhibition space is not open to visitors at the moment. We look forward to welcoming you when we reopen in the future.

Information about the student-led exhibition 'Mind Matters', which was intended to be on display between 21 April - 21 May 2020, is available and demonstrates some of the hard work which our student curators put into the project.

Past events:

Crafting Resistance: The art of Chilean political prisoners

An exhibition co-curated by Jasmine Gideon, Birkbeck, University of London, and Gloria Miqueles, Chilean ex-political prisoner, held at the MRC between 30 October - 17 November 2017.

Open Education Series

The Open Education Series was a monthly series of events organized by students at the University of Warwick on topics that have been mostly excluded or challenge the Eurocentric academic curriculum. The series utilised the resources of the MRC, a unique archive housing primary sources on modern British social, political and economic history and allowed for attendees to engage with original source material.

Archives Alive

A project that involved working with local schools to develop pupils' research skills and encourage them to engage with primary sources.
