[b][font=arial][color=navy][size=2]ORAL HISTORIES OF [/size][/color][/font][/b][b][font=arial][color=navy][size=2]BIRMINGHAM[/size][/color][/font][/b][b][font=arial][color=navy][size=2] IN THE POST WAR YEARS[/size][/color][/font][/b]
[b][font=arial][color=navy][size=2][/size][/color][/font][/b]
[font=arial][color=navy][size=2]I am currently studying for an MA in Spatial Planning at [/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2]Birmingham[/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2] [/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2]City[/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2] [/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2]University[/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2] and I am in the formative stages researching my chosen dissertation subject. [/size][/color][/font]
[font=arial][color=navy][size=2][/size][/color][/font]
[font=arial][color=navy][size=2]I am particularly interested in the idea of comparing the experiences of those who lived through a period of reconstruction and subsequent modernization in post-war [/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2]Birmingham[/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2] with contemporary experiences of the urban environment. [/size][/color][/font]
[font=arial][color=navy][size=2][/size][/color][/font]
[font=arial][color=navy][size=2]For the primary research component of my dissertation I have decided to explore how local people engaged with the plans for redevelopment with residents who had lived and worked in [/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2]Birmingham[/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2] between 1950 and 1970 when [/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2]Birmingham[/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2] experienced a period of enormous development. I would also like to examine their views on the more recent regeneration schemes in [/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2]Birmingham[/size][/color][/font][font=arial][color=navy][size=2] that have occurred during the late 1980’s to the present day. [/size][/color][/font]
[font=arial][color=navy][size=2][/size][/color][/font]
[font=arial][color=navy][size=2]Would you happen to know of any persons who would be interested and willing to be interviewed to inform this piece of research? I will be looking to conduct the interviews during [b]Autumn/Winter 2007. [/b]If so, I would be most grateful if you could forward me any details you feel would be relevant. [/size][/color][/font]
[font=arial][color=navy][size=2][/size][/color][/font]
[font=arial][color=navy][size=2]Many thanks for your time and help.[/size][/color][/font]
