GLAM Survey of Collecting Policy & Practice:
University of East Anglia Library, Norwich

The University of East Anglia’s Archives Department holds a handful of literary related archives. The deposits formally organised as the Archives of Modern Writing and Literary Translation arise out of the work of UEA’s British Centre for Literary Translation (BCLT) and School of Literature and Creative Writing. They include papers deposited by Malcolm Bradbury, Professor of American Studies, and founder of the creative writing course at UEA. Other collections include the personal papers of novelist and journalist Anthony Grey; papers relating to the publication of the journal Theatre Quarterly; the Lorna Sage papers; and papers of Peterborough Literary Society.
