Our community is made ​​up of over 200 affiliates. Academic and community-based researchers, students, artists, educators, and practitioners specializing in different disciplines: their diverse areas of expertise are impressive.

Ethical guidelines, practical and methodological training, webinars, digital tools, software and links: this section contains a variety of useful tools for anyone wishing to develop an oral history project.

Our affiliates continuously produce a wide variety of research and multimedia projects. Here you will find information on current and past projects, as well as on the many outcomes produced by our community.

Our archives contain thousands of oral history interviews recorded by our affiliated researchers and partners. These documents can be consulted by researchers and the public. We also accept donations of oral history interviews.


Friday, March 22, from 8am to 5pm

With the chosen title of Critical Creations for this year’s Symposium, we want to position emerging scholarship in oral history under the umbrella of research-creation. Undoubtedly, whether in the moment of meeting witnesses or in the making of productions, oral history has often been associated with creative practices like photography, theatre, visual arts, literature, dance, and much more. In recent years, these practices have given way to more elaborate reflections concerning the relationship between oral history and research-creation and produced new practices that are still in the process of being articulated and shaped.

As a transdisciplinary field at the intersections of ethnography, psychology, and history, oral history lends itself to a critical rereading of traditional approaches and disciplines at the theoretical and methodological levels. In some ways, it is a form of DIY, an inventiveness in research that rethinks ethical issues and favours new avenues, or new forms of critical reflection. It is these considerations that we now propose to explore with young researchers, who are often at the forefront of these questions and experiments.
