These are the interviews and documentaries published by students at the University of Leeds as part of their work in the module SPPO3640 Discovering Spanish Voices Abroad in a Digital World (OpenLIVES). You can find other resources, such as class materials, presentations or academic references in other folders and resources in HumBox. There is another collection of interviews of emigres who left Spain between the 1930's to the 1960's published by the HumBox team: http://humbox.ac.uk/3790/
I gave this presentation at the OER13 conference, on 26th March 2013. It is an outline of the activities and findings of the amazing OpenLIVES project. Find OpenLIVES interviews at www.humbox.ac.uk/3790 and look at the Openlives group to find more resources.

Observing the 1980s brings together ‘voices’ from both the Mass Observation Project and the British Library Oral History Collection. This material offers a unique and inspiring insight into the lives and opinions of British people from a range of social classes and regions during the 1980s. Additional context for these materials comes from a collection of ephemera from the same period, consisting of a range of publications dealing with contemporary issues such as the Poll Tax, AIDS and the Falklands Conflict. The materials were selected for their relevance to themes addressed in the undergraduate history course ‘1984: Thatcher’s Britain’ at the University of Sussex.
