Fifty Voices, Fifty Faces

The University of Sussex Oral History

This oral history and photography project captures the personal memories and reflections of 50 staff and students across the five decades since the University’s opening in 1961. The oral histories tell the individual stories behind the institution’s history and provide a fascinating account of people’s relationship with the University and what Sussex meant – and means - to them. This online exhibition provides a snapshot of the rich material gathered in the project, which will be archived in The Keep.
