Oral History Network


Welcome to the Warwick Oral History Network. We are an interdisciplinary network engaged in theoretical and practical issues involved in interviewing for research. We offer a variety of academic seminars and workshops which are open to all, as well as guidance and support for people's oral history projects. Use this website to meet our members, find out about our events, and explore examples of the research being undertaken at Warwick and in the local community.

New publication: Memories of Binley Colliery

We are delighted to announce that our joint project with Warwickshire Wildlife Trust has reached fruition, in the shape of a full-colour 16-page booklet showcasing a selection of themes and stories from the interviews undertaken with residents of Binley (Coventry) about their local area, in particular the former Binley colliery (now the Claybrookes Marsh nature reserve). This has been a long but exciting process, and huge credit must go to our dedicated undergraduate volunteers who have worked so hard on the booklet, to our colleagues at WWT, and to our designer Steve. You can find out more about the project and download the booklet.
