Our community is made ​​up of over 150 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.

We lead our own research and creation projects besides collaborating to those of our affiliates and partners. 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.


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.

Alors que l'histoire orale occupe une place relativement marginale au sein de la discipline historienne, ses diverses formes de pratiques favorisent néanmoins les échanges avec diverses disciplines des sciences humaines et sociales, ce dont témoignent des travaux novateurs réalisés au cours des dernières années au Québec. En s'appuyant sur les discussions qui ont émergé lors d'une journée d'études à l'Université de Sherbrooke en avril 2015, et pour souligner le lancement du numéro spécial de la RhAf sur les sources orales, cette table ronde rassemble de jeunes chercheurs en histoire orale qui sont invités à partager leurs récits de pratique à l'aulne de la formation qu'ils et elles ont reçue. Comment forme-t-on la relève, d'une institution à une autre? Comment se pratique l'histoire orale au Québec, dans les murs de l'université et à l'extérieur du cadre académique?

La table ronde sera présidée par Ioana Radu, et commentée par Louise Bienvenue, directrice de la RhAf, et Denyse Baillargeon, professeure d’histoire à l’Université de Montréal. La discussion sera suivie d'une petite réception, et des copies du numéro spécial de la RhAf seront en vente.

Don't miss next week's workshop with Sara Kendall! It will take place on Friday, February 5th, from 12:00pm to 2:00pm.

How are children and teenagers in our communities seen, and how else can they be encountered, represented and heard? How might young people take the lead in re-imagining and re-negotiating the inequities that have become naturalized in our environments, and in what ways are they already resisting injustice in powerful ways? In this workshop, we will share and discuss pedagogical tools and activities for supporting young people in creating and sharing narratives that dismantle, counter, and push aside prevailing representations of youth. We will look at ways that we, as educators and researchers, can facilitate youth meaning-making, self-representation and resistance in our communities. And how we can listen to, and learn from, how young people understand themselves and their worlds. 

Sara Kendall is a Co-Director of Kite's Nest, a learning center for children and teenagers in Hudson, NY. She is also am M.A. student in Concordia's INDI program.

Our next workshop will take place on January 29 2016 at 12pm. Don't miss it!

Aaron Goodman is a doctoral student in the PhD in Communication Studies program at Concordia University and a faculty member in the Journalism and Communication Studies department at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Surrey, B.C.

In many photojournalism and documentary images of heroin users, photographers represent their subjects as exotic, as outcasts, and as dangerous to society. Aaron Goodman has been attempting to create images that represent heroin users in more balanced and human ways. In this workshop, Aaron will discuss a digital storytelling workshop that he facilitated and a photo documentary that he produced about long-term heroin users in Vancouver, B.C. taking part in North America’s first heroin-assisted treatment program.

We would like to welcome Dr. Amanda Ricci, who is joining COHDS as a new post-doctoral fellow for the next six months thanks to the FRQSC-funded Montreal History Group. Dr. Ricci recently defended her PhD at McGill on “Thereʼs No Place Like Home: Feminist Communities, Social Citizenship, and (Un)Belonging in Montrealʼs Long Womenʼs Movement, 1952-1992.” The thesis examined previously unexamined feminist histories, revealing how members of various Montreal-based women’s organizations envisioned, defined, and fought for emancipation and autonomy. Building on this work, Dr. Ricci’s time at COHDS will be spent delving further into oral history method, theory and ethics as well as collaborative approaches to research. She has published in Left History, and has a forthcoming article in Recherches amérindiennes du Québec as well as in the edited collection, Womenʼs Activism and “Second Wave” Feminism: Transnational Histories. She joins Drs. Karoline Truchon, Stéphane Martelly, and Lilia Topouzova as COHDS-based SSHRC or FRQSC post-doctoral fellows.

Our next workshop will take place on January 22nd 2016 at 12pm.
