Description

This is a pilot project in which 20 women of non-English speaking backgrounds who migrated to South Australia after 1945 were interviewed at length about their lives and experiences and the impact of their new home on their social and cultural lives. Topics include family, divorce, working in South Australia, SA League of Women Voyers, communism, tertiary studies, and so on. A small proportion of the interviews were conducted in the original language of the interviewee involved. The majority are conducted in English. A book for use in secondary and tertiary education was intended to be developed from the interviews. Many of the women have adopted pseudonyms which are inducated by inverted commas.
