Symposium: In the Shadow and Light of the Tavistock Institute’s Archive

You are invited to attend a symposium celebrating 70 years of applied social sciences work at the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations. The TIHR conducted organisational research with a wide variety of institutions, including Unilever, the National Coal Board, British European Airways and the Ministry of Technology. The symposium takes place at the Conway Hall in central London on Thursday 19th October 2017. It is free to attend but booking is required and can be made as either a full day or a morning or afternoon session here.

The symposium forms part of a four-day festival celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Tavistock Institute, which is taking place in central London from Tuesday 17th October to Friday 20th October. Full information can be found here on the festival website.

These events also mark the launch of the Tavistock Institute’s Archive detailed here at: Wellcome Library. For information on accessing the Tavistock Archive, please take a library tour on Tuesday 17th October (book here) or Wednesday 18th October (book here). To see highlights from the Archive please visit the exhibition, ‘Past, Present & Future: From the Tavistock Institute Archive’, on display at the Swiss Church from 17th to 20th October (detailed here).
