Freelance Oral Historian

The Anaesthesia Museum is embarking on a journey to readdress the balance of the stories it tells and the events they deliver. A journey which is needed and we’re eager to begin.

This project, Lost in the ether: Missing perspectives within anaesthesia has been made possible by a grant from the Association of Independent Museums Tackling Inequality Grant Award supported by Arts Council England. The project aims to confront attitudes towards race, gender and disability within anaesthesia.

The collection is not as comprehensive and representative of the anaesthesia specialty as it should be, there are gaps within the collection with regards to race, gender, sexual orientation and abilities. This project will begin to address this by diversifying the stories we tell beyond the white male perspective through collecting oral histories from female anaesthetists, those from ethnically diverse communities, the LGBTQ+ community, and those living with disabilities.
