The Columbia University Oral History Research Office will hold its annual Summer Institute from June 11 – June 22, 2007. The theme of this year’s Institute is "Telling the World: Oral History, Struggles for Justice and Human Rights Dialogues." During this year’s program we will explore how oral history theory and method contribute to an understanding of the political, historical and personal dimensions of human rights dialogues. Joining us in the creation of this year’s program is the International Center for Transitional Justice, whose staff will collaborate with leading oral historians to consider how various practices of truth-telling apply to specific cases of human rights struggles, and to the personal, cultural and political processes of dialogue. This institute is designed for students, scholars, documentarians, and human rights workers. The program for the Institute will be available on the Oral History Research Office web page on the week of March 12, 2007. The deadline for applications is April 15, 2007. The tuition is $1,000. Housing is available at a reduced cost.
