Then and Now: The Changing Arts Student Experience at the University of Warwick

This student-led project investigates the changing experience of Arts and Humanities students at the University of Warwick 1965-present. Undergraduate and Postgraduate students from the Arts Faculty will conduct oral history interviews with current and past staff and students. They will do so to discover more about the history of the Faculty of Arts and the ways in which the student experience has changed over time.

Among among other things the project explores the art and architectural heritage of the Humanities Building and art collection; shifting approaches of teaching and learning; course and departmental evolution; student voice and extra-curricular activities; and widening participation. Through reflecting on the past of Arts at the University of Warwick, the project aims to inspire thinking about its future; especially as the Faculty prepares to move into the new Faculty of Arts Building in 2021. It also aims to create a sense of learning community across the Arts disciplines.

The project will culminate in an exhibition at the Modern Records Centre in June 2020. There will also be a special issue dedicated to the project in the research journal Exchanges in early 2021.
