Throwback Thursday: Assignment 4 meets my Grandmother

In January 2019 OCA Student Julia Crockatt wrote about how research for her assignment 4 in the course Context and Narrative led her on a personal journey of discovery about her family. Read the post here.

Tutor Derek Trillo commented about the work – This is a fascinating interplay between research, family history and your own personal commentary.

Julia’s Grandmother, Laelia Goehr, was a Jewish refugee who came to this Britain, studied with Bill Brandt and then had a successful career as a photographer. Julia has just completed and published a website on her Grandmother which you can visit here: https://www.laeliagoehr.com/

“This website, although something I always intended to do, was basically inspired by an essay I did for C&N and is evidence of the profound effect that the course is having on my thinking and knowledge.”
