As an editorial board member with the Oral History Journal, I contribute regularly to the reviewing of submitted manuscripts, I liaise with members of the International Editorial Advisory Group and I also helped with preparation of the journal’s special anniversary online issue in 2019, OHS@50. Working as an independent consultant, researcher and cultural historian has involved me with many voluntary groups and local organisations including most recently, Windrush: The Years After: A Community Legacy on Film and the creation of a Windrush Memorial Garden in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. I have a background in inter-disciplinary teaching and research, including social change, tourism history, migration history, cultural identity and memory, and also indigenous documentary film-making in Canada. I have published extensively on film history, particularly contributing to the international growth of amateur film studies and related issues of personal story-telling, archiving and interpretation. I hold honorary positions at the University of Huddersfield and at Manchester Metropolitan University.
