New resources added to the Commonwealth Oral History Project Website

Friday 6 January 2017

The inaugural Anthony Low lecture, delivered by the Hon Gareth Evans, former Foreign Minister of Australia, at the Australian National University, is available via the Commonwealth Oral History Project website. You can read the interviews by Dr Sue Onslow with Gareth Evans, undertaken as part of the project, here.

The aim of the Commonwealth Oral History Project is to provide a unique digital research resource on the oral history of the Commonwealth from 1965 onwards. Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, the project will provide an essential research tool for anyone investigating the history of the Commonwealth and will serve to promote interest in and understanding of the organisation, especially given its reliance on informal networking and quiet diplomacy, which is less well-recorded in paper-based archives. New resources and information continue to be added to the project website in order to ensure it remains a living resource which can be widely used by scholars.
