Race, Immigration and Oral History: A Toolkit for Students

Event providers: The University of Manchester

Event Fallback Image

In this 1 hour session, we will teach GCSE students about how to conduct oral history interviews and focus on how they have been used to find out more about the experiences of West Indian migrants to Britain after the Second World War. We will think about the ways recording migrants’ experiences can be a positive activity for both historians and those who are interviewed, ensuring that others learn about what are often difficult and life-changing journeys to reach Britain, as well as the challenges faced in settling into life in a new country. There can also be an opportunity for students to learn about languages, cultures, and religions with which they are unfamiliar, whilst developing an important research skill.
