Join us for this workshop on Monday October 5 (12-2) which will focus on the thinking behind a large national oral history project in Australia to document the lifelong impact of being in care as a child. This project was conducted in the aftermath of several extensive government inquiries, and before the current Royal Commission into Institutional Responses into Child Sexual Abuse. I will discuss how we addressed some of the challenges in conducting a national, government funded, historical documentation project in a politically and emotionally charged context. I will raise issues of methodology for large oral history projects, ethical questions for historians, and the difference between being an advocate and doing history. I will reflect on what justice means for those involved in the project.
