Centre of South Asian Studies Archive: Audio

From the University of Cambridge's Centre of South Asian Studies comes this audio archive of "oral history sound recordings." The collection, which is currently being digitized by the Centre, features more than 100 recordings available for users to search and enjoy. From political leaders to journalists to educators, the collection houses reflections of individuals who witnessed and shaped history. To explore the included materials, readers will likely want to use the search bar at the top of the page to tailor results to a topic of interest. Users are advised that single-word searches will provide optimal results. For example, a search for "music" reveals more than a dozen results, from music curriculum to music and dance in Nepal. The results include which interviews cover the topic, as well as the exact time in the recording where the topic is discussed. Visitors without particular subject matter in mind can also scroll through the full collection, which provides a summary paragraph of what each interview includes. Navigating to the interview records, users will find an audio stream accompanied by a downloadable transcript of its contents.
