"She takes his arm without a word, / In lanes of laurel and of rose. / Ten years to-day has she been his." The theme of women as a commodity and the property of their husband is a recurring one in Victorian literature and Dickens's novels. At #DickensianDateables not only do you have the chance to subvert this view but also visualise and learn more about women's role in society in Victorian England. Pictured above: Coventry Patmore's 'The Angel in the House' sourced from The British Library 👰🏻🌹🗄 #archivalresearch#BritishLibrary#VictorianEra#VictorianWomen#DickensNovels#19thcenturyliterature
Did you know that in 19th century Britain, women's role in society was considered wholly domestic and only in relation to men as husbands, fathers and sons? The Victorian view of women as passive creatures and a 'comforter' (as can be seen above in the ephemeral card) to men influenced the argument against allowing them the vote... much has changed today with women not only having the vote but also having the decision as to what role they choose to play in society and who they choose to 'comfort'. Learn more about Victorian women at our event #DickensianDateables ❣️🗄📄#ArchivalResearch#BritishLibrary#womensrights#victorianera#victorianwomen

Thank you to everyone who came along to the opening night of @thestoryboxcollective ‘s first exhibition on Thursday. We all had an absolutely brilliant time and it great that so many people came to see our archival research design outcomes.
We’ll be posting more about our work in the days to come but for now, here’s a few pics of a fantastic evening at @wiltonsmusichall dedicated to its rich and amazing history.
The show runs until the 25th of November, so head on down to East London to check out @thestoryboxcollective ‘s first exhibition Tales of Absence, ‘What ifs” and Salvation
A successful trip to Gloucester to a) review the archives for the Gibbons Family of Boddington Manor (stellar wedding photo of J.S. Gibbon’s daughter c. 1897 and the 1926 inventory for the wine cellar... I’ll take all the old Ports please), b) see fan vaulting, c) admire the effigy of Robert Curthose, eldest son of William the Conquerer, and d) enjoy the serenity of the cloisters at Gloucester Cathedral on a drizzly English day. #weddinggoals#provenanceresearch#gloucesterarchives#archivalresearch
We heard Hannah Peel on BBC Radio 6 Music last weekend.. Talking about her memory tapes as a part of the music and memory feature at the Wellcome Collection.. Which we recommend you listen to! @thestoryboxcollective is fascinated by the idea of sound and memory as archive.. And the idea that auditory sensory stimulation allows us to tap into and activate a deep part of the memory storage parts of the brain.. @wellcomecollection @bbc6music @hannahpeelmusic @cerys6music #soundasmemory#memorytapes#soundasarchive#archivalresearch
One of the goals of the Lemon Project is to research enslaved people owned by William and Mary. Here is an excerpt from the Bruton Parish Baptismal Records, October 2, 1768, about an enslaved woman and her two-month old daughter. “Lucy Daughter of Charlot Belonging to William and Mary College Was Born August 9th 1768 and Baptized October 2d.” #thelemonproject#williamandmary#archivalresearch#williamsburgva
We’re happy to say that this week @thestoryboxcollective has been invited to takeover @telegramgallery ‘s Instagram account to show some of our archival research and work-in-progress for our upcoming exhibition at @wiltonsmusichall. Stay tuned for some interesting images inspired by the world’s oldest surviving music hall #thestoryboxcollective#archivalresearch#archives#telegramtakeover
Faan’s Storybox project looks at the hidden corners of the @wiltonsmusichall building itself. Her work imagines a ‘what if’ narrative about the history of the Grand Music hall from a fantastical perspective…
