London Oral History is run by Marése O’Sullivan and Faisal Hanif, both currently completing the MA in Newspaper Journalism at City University London. Marése has written for the Observer and Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine among others, while Faisal has been published by the Guardian and The Huffington Post.
We’re particularly interested in London and its relationship with oral history – from its importance to genealogists, to migrants, to researchers. Oral historians are connected by their passion for recording stories that otherwise might not be heard – and we want to help amplify the voices of our past.
