Research Summary
Liz Bruchet is a Lecturer in Archival Studies, teaching on the MA in Archives & Records Management programme in the Department of Information Studies, UCL. She is also an independent archive curator and oral historian with a research focus on the curation of archival resources, particularly in relation to visual arts organisations.

Her AHRC-funded PhD in Archival Studies from the University of Brighton (2019) examined the tangled interconnections between archives and curatorial practices, and provided a structural modelling for understanding the wide-ranging conceptualisations of archives and ‘the archive’ in curatorial discourse. She also completed an MA in Curatorial Studies (UBC, Canada, 2004). Between 2017-2020, she was Archive Curator and Researcher at the Slade School of Fine Art, working on the Slade Archive Project for which she developed and managed a range of collaborative research, digitisation, cataloguing and exhibition projects; she continues to conduct research as part of the Transnational Slade project. She has led oral history projects for institutions such as the Association for Art History and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, and have taught research methodology at a number of arts institutions in the UK.

Her research focuses on archives and curation, and their practical and theoretical interconnections; the institutional histories and documentary practices of visual arts and heritage organisations, with a current focus on the transnational and interdisciplinary histories of the Slade School of Fine Art, London; and oral history as research method and resource in the arts. She is also interested in expanding understanding of the risks and vulnerabilities in the curation of archives; biographies of archives, ‘orphan’, unofficial and hybrid museum and archival records and artefacts, and the understanding of these for curatorial practice.
