‘Comment is free, but facts are sacred’: The Guardian in Local, National, and Global History
Keynote speaker: Martin Wainwright, journalist, author and former Northern Editor of the Guardian.
This conference celebrates the rich history of the Guardian (formerly Manchester Guardian) newspaper, as told through its remarkable archive. The event marks the culmination of a project by the University of Manchester Library to catalogue C.P. Scott’s Editorial Correspondence in the Guardian Archive, an initiative which was made possible by the National Cataloguing Grants Programme for Archives.
Reflecting the long history and significance of the newspaper, the conference features papers which focus on the Guardian’s involvement in local, national and international events over a 140-year period.
