Niamh Dillon, a British Library staff member, is researching a Ph.D thesis at Goldsmiths College, University of London on migration within the British Empire in the 20th century, and more particularly on the lives of British people living in India in the period leading up to independence from Britain. She is hoping to record interviews with people who experienced life in India before independence, and their subsequent experiences after moving to Britain post-independence.
If you would be willing to help her with a recorded interview please contact her by email at [email protected] or [email protected], or by post to Niamh Dillon, National Life Stories, British Library, 96 Euston Road, LondonNW1 2DB
All recordings will be conducted in accordance with the ethical principles laid down by the Oral History Society. With the interviewees consent, the recordings will be archived at the British Library where she has been managing oral history projects since 2003
