The Open University Oral History Project

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

On Tuesday 16th August 2011 at 6pm, at Bishopsgate Institute, London there is a meeting of the Oral History Workshop. The forum will include talks by Hilary Young (who recorded many interviewers with OU staff and students and now works at the Museum of London) on ‘Old Guard v New Recruits: The Open University Oral History Project’. There will also be a talk by Owen Collins (University of East London) on ‘George Ewart Evans and the roots of oral history in Britain’. It is intended that informal group discussion afterwards from speakers and the floor will facilitate finding out what’s happening in oral history projects and local projects, discussing possible new directions in oral history and meeting activists/organisers from a wide range of history projects. There’ll also be opportunities to consider future co-ordination and collaboration of projects. This is a free event. All welcome.

 If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Stefan Dickers at If you can’t attend please let us know if you’d like to be kept informed of future activities. Directions to  Bishopsgate Institute, 230 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 4QH  here
