As outlined here, the Modernist Podcast is launching a new campaign, encouraging researchers to share a small portion of their time at archives to benefit those who may be unable to visit repositories for a constellation of reasons. Below is a list of researchers who are able to offer their time, which archive they will be visiting and the nature of the work they can undertake. If you would like to offer your time, please do so by emailing using the form below, including a brief explanation of the archive you are visiting and the support you are able to provide.
