About Me

A personal blog for Peter Webster. I’m an historian based in London and Chichester, with interests in the history of Christianity in twentieth century Britain, particularly the relation of church, law and state, and the religious arts.SAS_Brochure2012

I work at the interface of historical scholarship with digital technologies, with particular interests in digital history, digitisation more generally, web archiving and digital curation, and Open Access publishing (repositories and journals).

During the working day I am managing director of Webster Research and Consulting Ltd. Before setting up WR&C, I was Web Archiving Engagement and Liaison Manager at the British Library, and Program and Communications Officer for the International Internet Preservation Consortium. Before that I was a member of staff at the Institute of Historical Research and at the School of Advanced Study, both in the University of London.

I am a Fellow of the George Bell Institute, and a member of the Council of the Church of England Record Society.

I am also a member of the Academic Steering and Advocacy Committee for the Open Library of the Humanities.
