Extended workshop - Decolonizing Research: Doing Oral History in Indigenous Contexts

 

Friday, October 30, 2015 - 09:00 to Saturday, October 31, 2015 - 17:30
Speaker: 
Ioana Radu and Aude Maltais-Landry

This two-day, bilingual, in-depth workshop will take place on October 30-31, at COHDS.

The workshop introduces participants to the opportunities and challenges of doing oral history in Indigenous contexts. The first part explores the relationship between oral history practice and recent decolonizing theories as they relate to doing research with and for Indigenous communities. The second part provides theoretical and hands-on training in oral history research and project development. We encourage participants to bring their own research project or idea.

Find more details on the pedagogical goals and complete timetable.

Please note: This is a bilingual workshop. Workshop materials are available in English and French, but a good knowledge of both languages is necessary to take part in the discussion. No instantaneous translation is available.

The cost of the workshop is established at 30$ per participant, which includes the first lunch (on October 30th). Registration fees should be paid at COHDS office, which will confirm your registration.

Using oral history methodology and decolonizing theory, her thesis, entitled “Miyupimaatisiiun in Eeyou Itschee: Healing and Decolonization in Chisasibi” explored everyday decolonization and how healing operates in people’s lives (see www.chisasibi-healing.ca). Her ongoing research interests include knowledge mobilization, cultural safety, oral history and public policy. She is now a post-doctoral fellow at the Aboriginal Research and Knowledge Network (DIALOG), INRS.
