UK residents - wanted by the British Library...
« on: May 30, 2007, 04:31:56 AM »
yet another thread about oral... oral history, that is  :)
NAM is plugging this, was in another email I got too - thought someone might be interested:

"From 1995 to 1999 the 'HIV and AIDS Testimonies Project' recorded life history interviews with 30 people infected with the virus living in the UK. These are kept unedited in the Sound Archive at the British Library as both part of a record of our social history and as a research resource for the future (respecting the wishes of those who gave them - some are completely closed for 50 years). All interviewees also received a copy to keep for themselves, their friends and family.
As part of a 2007 follow-up project, ten new interviews are being conducted with people living with HIV in the UK, who have been infected in the last decade or who were unable to tell their story ten years ago. At the moment, the British Library are looking for people who want to take part who are from African Communities, who are gay men under 25 years of age, or who are young people born with the virus. They would also particularly like to find some people who live outside of London, perhaps in Manchester, Edinburgh, the Midlands or in a rural location.

Offering to be interviewed involves being visited by a trained oral historian who will record your story in your own words over a number of sessions. Please get in touch with the project if you would like to find out about taking part. The Project is based at London South Bank University.

For further information, please ring Wendy Rickard or email rickarwj@lsbu.ac.uk "
