Higher Education


The Oral History Society’s Higher Education Group is engaged with the specific issues facing those using oral history across various disciplines in HE teaching and research. We represent oral history in Britain at both national and international levels. We are keen to develop a network of oral historians in HE, stimulate debate on oral history theory and methodology and establish a list of academics able to supervise oral history PhDs.

Since 2012, the OHS HE group has collaborated with the Institute of Historical Research in presenting evening seminars on oral history topics and an annual Advance Oral History School.

The OHS HE group currently consists of eight Trustees (Angela Bartie, Joanna Bornat, Fiona Cosson, Jenny Harding, Graham Smith, Shelley Trower, Michelle Winslow and Hilary Young).

If you would like to join a register of academics interested in supervising oral history PhDs, please email Jenny Harding: j.harding@londonmet.ac.uk
