Preserving the voice of the past
Interested in oral history?
For almost half a century, the Oral History Society has supported people who want to record and preserve spoken history and share it with others. We encourage people of all ages to record their own and other people’s life stories.
Between April 2001 and March 2002 Kiyotaka Sato was a visiting scholar at the Centre for Urban History and the East Midlands Oral History Archive (EMOHA) at the University of Leicester. During his time there he developed an interest in the history and culture of multi-ethnic Britain, and in particular in Leicester itself. Here he reflects on his subsequent research and the ‘Memory and Narrative’ series: a collection of biographical booklets that he published as a result of his work.
