Abstract

The ongoing Lothian Diary Project consists of 125+ audio/video recordings collected since May 2020 from residents of Edinburgh and the Lothian counties in Scotland. The diaries comprise self-recorded monologues or semi-structured interviews in which participants discuss their experiences during different stages of the Covid-19 pandemic. Recordings were uploaded to an online survey that also collected consent, demographic information, and opinion regarding Covid-related policies. All data marked for reuse will be housed in the University of Edinburgh’s DataShare repository upon completion of data collection. Data from consenting participants will form an oral history archive with Museums and Galleries, Edinburgh.
