Abstract

This paper looks at the research methodology and findings of the collaborative project ’Echoes of Protest’ by Sheffield Hallam University academic, Esther Johnson, Professor of Film and Media Arts, and Leeds Arts University academic Debbie Ballin, Senior Lecturer in Filmmaking. 'Echoes of Protest’ aims to understand the role protest can play in the politicisation of children and the long-term impact of its aftermath on their lives. The initial phase of this research draws on oral testimony and photography to highlight a seldom-explored perspective of the 1984-1985 UK Miners’ Strike. The stories collected are from adults remembering what it was like to grow up during the strike.
