Oral Histories

History is the story and product of human experiences. Oral histories provide valuable perspectives into people and events, which can then be recorded and preserved for future generations. Through this process, we can build relationships with prisoners and the general communities by humanising and challenging prevailing stereotypical constructions of prisoners and their families, prison life and the prison community generally. These Oral Histories also provide a written history of prisoners and the prisoner movement framed within the development of Australian history, culture and values.
