April Gallwey

Research Fellow in Oral History, Institute of Advanced Study

University of Warwick

April Gallwey is currently the Project Officer for 'Voices of the University: Memories of Warwick, 1965 - 2015.' This project will see the creation of a collection of oral history interviews with people who have studied, worked and lived near the university since it was established in 1965.  She previously held an Early Career Fellowship at the Institute for Advanced Study.  Her research interests are in twentieth-century British history with a particular focus on post-war class and gender relations, families and households and oral history interviewing. Her PhD thesis explores the socio-economic history of single mothers in the post-war period and is based on the re-analysis of fifty life history interviews from the UK's National Sound Archive, as well as contemporary sociological surveys.
