About Us

These oral history interviews, conducted by Georgina Ferry, capture the stories of pioneering women at the forefront of research, teaching and service provision for computing in Oxford, 1950s-1990s. Themes throughout the interviews include career opportunities, gender splits in computing, the origins and development of computing teaching and research in Oxford, as well as development of the University of Oxford's Computing Service and the commercial software house the Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG). The Oxford Women in Computing oral history project is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), through grants held by Professor Ursula Martin, and forms part of a broader project on the development and impact of computing. The project also acknowledges support from NAG Ltd, Oxford Mathematics, Oxford IT services, and the Bodleian Libraries.
