Dave Richardson is the third PHD student supporting My Route from Birmingham University’s Reaching Out from Higher Education scheme. He’s assisting us with volunteer research in both the archives and public data collection due to his specialist knowledge in this area. Find out more about Dave below.
My thesis looks at populist campaigns in Britain for and against European integration in the post-war period, which blurred the lines of pressure groups and people’s movements.
I wanted to get involved in My Route, as, having spent the past few years looking at the records and committee minutes of political organisations, the opportunity to work in local history and help towards the creation of a community archive was particularly appealing. Having been a resident of Birmingham for the past 10 years, I am looking forward to helping record and share the city’s diverse cultural heritage.
