This interdisciplinary seminar sets out to reflect upon the value of oral history in the broader discipline of memory studies today, in particular on its role in the deconstruction of dominant discourses of the past.
Focus will be on the protests of 1968 in Europe: the seminar aims at tracing a link between participants and observers across the continent, and will offer a reflection on the impact of 1968 on their lives, as well as stimulate a methodological discussion of oral history.
Speakers include, among others, Prof. Robert Gildea of the research project 'Around 1968: Activism, Networks, Trajectories', and oral historian Bruno Bonomo, co-author with Alessandro Portelli and others of an oral history project on Rome.
Location: University of Warwick, Institute of Advanced Study.
The seminar is open to all, but places are limited so please register.
