Trusted Source is a new resource on the National Trust's website containing concise, engaging and accessible articles about history, culture and the natural environment, commissioned to enhance visitor experience of the charity's properties and places. Trusted Source articles are written by researchers from a variety of specialisms and subject areas, from graduate students to senior academics and heritage professionals. Read about the project here: https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/ktp and here http://www.torch.ox.ac.uk/trusted-source

This workshop will focus on LGBTQ+ people, places and objects within the National Trust and how we can engage with the public to make these hidden histories more visible. Come along to find out more about Trusted Source and the National Trust's LGBTQ+ project, Prejudice & Pride, then start developing your own articles using resources provided. But please feel free to come with your own ideas! Facilitated by Alice Purkiss, the Knowledge Transfer Partnership Associate for Oxford University and the National Trust.

Graduate students and academic staff from any institution and academic discipline welcome. The workshop will be followed by a free lunch.
