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.

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.
