This workshop will take place on Thursday, February 11, from 12:00 to 2:00PM.
Celebrating the launch of the Revue d'histoire de l'Amérique française's special issue on oral sources, this event will largely take part in French.
As oral history holds a relatively marginal place within the field of history, its diverse forms of practice nonetheless favor interactions with various fields of human sciences and social sciences, as shown by multiple groundbreaking works produced throughout the last years in Quebec. Relying on the discussions that emerged from a day of study at the Université de Sherbrooke in April 2015, and to underline the launch of a special issue of the RhAf on oral sources, this round table unites young oral history researchers who are invited to share their practice, taking into account the training they received. How do we shape successors, from one institution to the other? How do we practice oral history in Quebec, within the University walls and outside the academic setting?
The round table will be facilitated by Ioana Radu, and commented by Louise Bienvenue, director at the RhAf, and Denyse Baillargeon, history professor at the Université de Montréal. A small gathering will follow the discussion, and copies of the RhAf’s special issue will be available for purshase.
