Oral History

Remaking Britain will be conducting oral history interviews as part of the project. We’re excited to be able to collect these stories to help reveal and preserve the British South Asian experience. All of the material collected by the project will be deposited with our partners The British Library, and will be freely accessible to public audiences. Clips of the interviews will also appear on the digital resource produced by the project.

 

Take Part

Would you like to tell your story, for it then to be preserved?¬†We are looking for people who identify as South Asian, living in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, who have never taken part in permanently and publicly archived oral history interviews. In particular, we’d like to capture stories that are on the margins of the margins. This means that we are interested in lesser-known stories of living in the UK, as South Asian. Get in touch to find out more.

We would meet at a place of your convenience and with your consent a team member would interview you, audio recording the conversation. This recording would then be preserved with The British Library and on the project digital resource. If you’d like to know more, simply contact us.
