Our Programme


  • We give fieldwork grants to researchers to make recordings in communities with endangered oral cultures.
  • We work with the communities themselves to ensure that they have access to and ownership of their recordings and have the means to preserve and disseminate them as they wish.
  • We archive fieldwork data received from researchers around the world.
  • We digitise these materials and make them accessible through our website.
  • We catalogue recordings already held in collections in the UK, both private and public, so that they can be made more widely available.
  • We run an annual international workshop for professionals and students interested in the preservation of oral cultures.
  • We publish papers by our researchers, and organise public lectures in Cambridge and elsewhere.
