THESIS TITLE: Student experience at Swansea University, 1920-1990

Research Synopsis

The purpose of my thesis is to narrate and capture student life at Swansea University between the years 1920 and 1990, with particular attention placed on how students have reflected wider cultural trends. Its research focuses on numerous themes which include student experiences and attitudes towards the university, war, protest, gender, fashion, relationships, and the surrounding community.

The finished article will aim to provide a true, comprehensive and cohesive account of student life at the institution through the uses of an oral history project, questionnaires and student based archival material.
