I began an AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award, entitled ‘Voices of the Cold War in 1950s Britain’, in October 2014. As a partnership between IWM and the University of Strathclyde, my research investigates the experiences of the Cold War by ordinary British people in the 1950s through oral history testimony. In doing so, it will give voice to routine engagement with predominant Cold War themes. The research will interrogate how Britons felt towards the Cold War in their everyday lives. I am particularly interested in experiences of how emotion impacts on individual and collective political engagement. Previously I studied a master’s in International History at London School of Economics and BA in History at the University of Sussex. Having worked in education and museums I am fascinated by life story collections beyond academia, in community and public engagement; as a result I also sit on a Board of Trustees for a London-based oral history charity called Eastside Community Heritage.

What if we changed our views on heritage? And if heritage has already changed? While, on the global scene, states maintain their leading role in the mobilization of social and territorial histories, on the local scale, regions, neighbourhoods and parishes have changed. Citizens and communities too: they latch on to heritage to express an unprecedented range of belongings that no law seems to be able to take measures to contain, often to the discontent of...

Most of what we experience as heritage emerges into conscious recognition through a complex mixture of political and ideological filters, including nationalism.  In these processes, through a variety of devices (museums, scholarly research, consumer reproduction, etc.), dualistic classifications articulate a powerful hierarchy of value and significance.  In particular, the tangible-intangible pair, given legitimacy by such international bodies as UNESCO, reproduces a selective ordering of cul...
