Paper on ‘Down the Worm Hole: Revisiting 80s “Heterosex”’ panel, with Prof. Rachel Thomson, Dr. Niamh Moore, Dr. Ester McGeeney.

This paper considers the ethical implications of revisiting and re-animating sociological interviews carried out in 1989/90 as part of the Women's Risk and Aids Project. It juxtaposes and analyses the data as a sociological data set, in the original context, and as a historical data set, in the current moment. Crucially, it explores our responsibilities as data controllers given GDPR legislation and considers the impact of controlled vocabulary when describing an individual historically.
