Location: Online

Aston University is set to host an online event to shed light on the experience of black workers in healthcare in Birmingham and the Midlands as part of Black History Month (BHM).

Hidden Voices: Black Healthcare Workers in the Midlandswill showcase the preliminary findings of an oral history project developed in collaboration with the University’s Centre for Health and Society at 19:30 – 20:30 BST on Wednesday 27 October.

Guided by specially trained staff, Aston University students have conducted interviews and selected the most relevant passages to highlight this much-neglected history of the Midlands and beyond.

The event will be the first live-streamed under the University’s newAston Originalsbrand of digital content.

Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions both in advance and during the session.

Dr Ilaria Scaglia, senior lecturer inhistoryat Aston University, said:

“I am really looking forward to hosting Hidden Voices: Black Healthcare Workers in the Midlands as part of Aston University’s digital content brand Aston Originals.

“As one of the most diverse history programmes in the UK, we wish to build on our strong Black, international, and public history expertise to become a reference point for a broad range of beneficiaries in the region and beyond.

“For Black History Month in October 2020, we organised a major online event with historian and broadcaster Professor David Olusoga on Black British History. We look forward to this year’s event shedding further light on one of Black British History’s crucial but neglected areas.”

Future plans include the widening of the oral history project to include not only doctors and nurses but also technicians, porters, cleaners, and members of the wider world of healthcare in the region.

Testimonials

For well over a decade, in my capacity as a researcher, broadcaster, and producer, I have relied heavily on Alphagalileo.
All of my work trips have been planned around stories that I've found on this site.
The under embargo section allows us to plan ahead and the news releases enable us to find key experts.
Going through the tailored daily updates is the best way to start the day. It's such a critical service for me and many of my colleagues.
Koula Bouloukos, Senior manager, Editorial & Production Underknown
We have used AlphaGalileo since its foundation but frankly we need it more than ever now to ensure our research news is heard across Europe, Asia and North America. As one of the UK’s leading research universities we want to continue to work with other outstanding researchers in Europe. AlphaGalileo helps us to continue to bring our research story to them and the rest of the world.
Peter Dunn, Director of Press and Media Relations at the University of Warwick
AlphaGalileo has helped us more than double our reach at SciDev.Net. The service has enabled our journalists around the world to reach the mainstream media with articles about the impact of science on people in low- and middle-income countries, leading to big increases in the number of SciDev.Net articles that have been republished.
