Key Themes

‌As part of a civic university, the Oral History Unit and Collective is committed to following in the long disciplinary tradition of working with those who are socially marginalised. Our approach takes into account both social and historical approaches to injustice. Whereas social justice is about the fair distribution of society's benefits and burdens, historical justice takes a long-term view on disadvantage, both locally and globally.

Students conduct and interview outdoors‌We seek to work across international, national and local areas of interest, developing partnership on a range of projects across the following key themes:

  • Work and After
  • Medical Humanities
  • Public History
  • Place and Environment
