Postgraduate research students and staff, do you want to learn about creating and managing digitial data?

A number of events will take place between the 1 - 4 October as part of a Knowledge Exchange, organised by the AHRC-funded project "Contemporary Capoeira in Rio de Janeiro, 1948-82."

This Knowledge exchange event will combine various activities (workshops, presenting research, round-table discussions) that are relevant for professionals in the area. Whilst training sessions, disucssions and round-table discussions aim to address general issues and problems arising of the combined practice of research and filmmaking, the main focus of the film screenings will focus on history of slavery and popular culture in Africa and its diaspora.

This training session around data management is the first of three, and will be lead by Veerle van den Eynden, from the UK Data Archive. This session will discuss organisation, file formats, storage, back-ups, syncing, data security and data encryption.

Each session can be attended as a stand-alone event, or participants can join all three complementary sessions. Sessions are free to attend.
