The Jo Spence Memorial Archive London

The Jo Spence archive was set up at Jo's suggestion just before her death in 1992. It is now the longest running open access archive devoted to her work in Europe. In line with her wishes the archive collection provides direct access to her writings and images for students, teachers, independent researchers and exhibition curators worldwide. Over the last 22 years of its active existence the archive has freely provided material for a range of academic dissertations, books and exhibitions related to Jo Spence and her concerns.

Now that we have the website, doctoral students who are considering working on Jo Spence can contact me with an outline of the proposed work. In some cases, I can now let students (especially those at Phd level) work on newly organised unpublished files - a wonderful opportunity for someone intending to pursue a serious academic career. For people living in North America I should say that I have now donated a comprehensive collection of Jo Spence material to the Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. Please contact them about availability and access.
