The Oral History Society is a national organisation which promotes the collection, preservation and use of recorded memories as well as playing a key role in facilitating and developing the use of oral history.  Part of their work includes an annual national conference and the theme for this year is year is Community Voices: Oral History on the Ground looking at themes such as:

● What is a community?

● Oral history in a contested or divided community

● How to make the most of digital resources

● Oral history in schools

● Creative approaches to Oral History

The conference is taking place at Manchester Metropolitan University on 18th and 19th July and we’re delighted to announce the ongoing work of Plymouth’s LGBT Archive group will be highlighted there with a paper entitled Gathering Unheard Voices: Queer Heritage in Post War Plymouth which explores the means by which the hidden histories of some very diverse communities of people has been accessed and explored to enable a sense of pride in their place within the city’s history.
