Greig is an untenured labour historian from a former steel-town in the West Midlands. His scholarly research measures worker responses to plant closures, with his PhD thesis providing an intimate account of a rank-and-file campaign to save a Black Country ironworks. Before undertaking his doctorate, Greig worked at a London-based heritage charity that utilised digital storytelling to engage with underrepresented communities. As a freelance heritage consultant, he fostered a ‘workshop history’ approach, assisting marginalised groups to produce histories of their own communities. With work showcased in various formal cultural institutions, he became troubled by the lack of working class representation in museums. Greig has expertise in grant writing, project management, reminiscence, oral history, archival research, digital storytelling and academic writing.
