Jody Butterworth joined the Endangered Archives Programme team in 2012 as curator. The Programme facilitates the digitisation of archives around the world that are in danger of destruction, neglect or physical deterioration while making them available to as wide an audience as possible. EAP is supported by Arcadia and administered by the British Library.
As part of her role, Jody co-authored Remote Capture: Digitising Cultural Heritage in Challenging Locations. She applied to the Barakat Trust to have the book translated into Arabic as part of outreach within the Middle East and North Africa regions.
Jody has MAs in the History of Art and Archaeology (SOAS) and in Museum Studies (Leicester). Prior to returning to her hometown of London, she spent seven years working and studying in Asia (Japan, China and Mongolia).
