'These Dangerous Women' Oral History Project

The series contains the recordings of interviews of 8 members of WILPF and related documents. The interviews were conducted between 2013 and 2015, as part of a part of the 'These Dangerous Women' community heritage project to mark the centenary of the formation of the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). Funded by the National Lottery Heritage and run by Clapham Film Unit and WILPF, the project's aims were to celebrate and commemorate the women who tried to stop World War I and founded the organisation.

Tales from Houghton Street: an LSE oral history

Was life as an LSE student so different in 1955 to 2015? What changes have our long-serving staff seen over the years? Where was there a Paternoster lift on campus? Who was Wright of Wright’s Bar? Find the answers to these questions and more in Tales from Houghton Street, an oral history project to celebrate LSE’s 120th anniversary in 2015.

Everyone at LSE has a story to tell and in summer 2015 the oral history project team (Hayley Reed, Sue Donnelly, Clara Cook and Tom Sturdy) was fortunate enough to speak to a small selection of alumni, academic and professional services staff about their LSE experience.

The collection contains one introductory podcast and 30 audio recordings of interviews with alumni and staff who were studying or working at LSE between the 1950s and 2015.

Participants discussed themes including their experiences as students, teachers and researchers at LSE, developments in higher education and the future of LSE. They also shared memories about the changes on LSE’s campus: the buildings, halls of residence, the social life, and about life in London through the years.

Each recording is accompanied by a summary of the interview to help researchers identify key points. The introductory podcast features excerpts from the interviews with alumni Carol Wain (1967), Brian Van Arkadie (1956) and Mary Evans (1967/1968, LSE Centennial Professor, Gender Institute).

Sustainable Security Programme

The Sustainable Security Programme was established in 2006-2007, expanding on Paul Rogers' work on marginalisation, climate change and geopolitics, as well as ORG's work on recording of casualties in armed conflict. The programme aimed to highlight the limitations of orthodox security policy and to develop policy alternatives that address underlying drivers.

Strategic Peacebuilding Programme

The Strategic Peacebuilding Programme (formerly the Middle East Programme) was ORG's conflict resolution programme which sought to contribute to preventing, transforming and ending violence by changing how people think about and engage with conflict.
The programme used a methodology based in ‘radical disagreement’ theory to build the capacity of local partners to engage in strategic dialogue and brokered a series of Track II dialogues in Israel, Palestine and Egypt and between Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria and other states.

Sisters Doing It For Themselves

This collection includes the recordings of 16 interviews carried out to mark the 50th anniversary of Women’s Liberation Movement (WLM) in 2020. For the occasion, the Women's Resource Centre (WRC) ran a project called 'Sisters Doing It For Themselves', funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, to create a unique oral history archive documenting the testimonies of current and past leaders.

The Women’s Voluntary and Community Sector (WVCS) grew out of the Women’s Liberation Movement (WLM). The contribution of the WVCS in advancing women’s rights is largely undocumented. Many of the women who were involved in setting up women’s organisations and campaigning for change are now in their late 50s and 60s. Their struggles and achievements have remained largely invisible.

This archive illustrates the impact that the WVCS has had on the structural position of women, through campaigning and influencing. The archive will also provide insight into the impact on the lives of the women themselves as drivers of the movement.

The following women have been interviewed:
Rosalind Bragg - Maternity Action
Lee Eggleston OBE & Sheila Coates MBE - Rape Crisis
Sarbjit Ganger - Asian Women's Resource Centre
Esuantsiwa Jane Goldsmith - Healing Solidarity International Feminist Collective
Carolina Gottardo - Latin American Women's Rights
Vivienne Hayes MBE - Women's Resource Centre
Joyce Kallevik - WISH
Ranjit Kaur - Activist & Campaigner
Professor Liz Kelly - Child and Woman Abuse Studies, LMU
Marai Larasi MBE
Naana Otoo-Oyortey MBE - FORWARD
Pragna Patel - Southall Black Sisters
Mary-Ann Stephenson - Women's Budget Group
Dr Akima Thomas OBE - Women and Girls Network

The portraits of interviewees that accompany the interview recordings were taken by photographer Oluwatosin Wasi Daniju.

Remote Warfare Programme

The Remote Warfare Programme (RWP) was established in 2018, based around the Remote Control project of the Network for Social Change, which had been hosted by ORG since 2013. It was set up to examine changes in military engagement, with a focus on remote warfare (in which countries like the United Kingdom choose to support local and regional forces on the front lines rather than deploying large numbers of their troops).

ORG Blog

The ORG blog was a platform for defence and security experts to exchange and discuss ideas. The views and opinions expressed by commissioned authors do not necessarily reflect those of ORG.

LSE Registers

The volume presented, as the first Register of the London School of Economics and Political Science from 1895 to 1932, covers thirty-seven years in the history of the School, but covers only thirty years of graduations in the University of which the School forms part.

LSE Calendars 1895 - 2006

From 1895-2006 the Calendar was the core public record of the work of the School.
The content of the Calendar developed over time and it provides general information relating to the School including: the Director’s annual report; lists of School staff; School regulations for the admission of students, course guides, timetables, degree lists and details of scholarships, prizes and staff publications.
From 1895-1900 the School’s courses were listed in yearbook which became the Calendar from the School’s entry into the University of London in 1900. Due to the impact of the First World War abridged calendars were published between 1915-1920 and short prospectuses were published during the Second World War from 1940-46.
