Introduction to Oral History and Interviewing


Wednesday, November 14, 2018 - 12:00 to 14:00
Piyusha Chatterjee & Stéphane Martelly

This workshop will provide you with some of the fundamentals in the interdisciplinary field of oral history. Participants will learn about an oral history approach to interviewing, ethics in research, and the many ways that oral histories are shared with the public. This workshop is strongly recommended to all new affiliates, as it is intended to present the methodology and ethics followed by our Centre.

Piyusha Chatterjee is a PhD student in an interdisciplinary program at Concordia University in Montreal. Her interests are in the field of oral history, political economy of the city, post-industrial landscapes, sound studies, media publics and media in Global South. She was born and raised in India and has a Bachelor's degree in English literature from Delhi University and a Master's degree from the English and Foreign Languages University in Lucknow. She worked as a news editor for newspapers for eight years. Her two-year stint as a curator at the Center for Public History, Srishti Institute of Art, Design and Technology, in Bangalore introduced her to oral history methodology and projects. She is currently rethinking her PhD proposal through an intersection of urbanism, media and oral history.

Écrivaine, peintre et chercheure, Stéphane Martelly est née à Port-au-Prince. Par une approche profondément transdisciplinaire qui fait se confronter théorie, réflexion critique et création, elle poursuit une démarche réflexive sur la littérature haïtienne contemporaine, sur la création, sur les marginalités littéraires ainsi que sur les limites de l’interprétation. Après des recherches postdoctorales en recherche-création au Centre d’Histoire Orale et de Récits Numérisés (2015-2017), elle est aujourd’hui professeure affiliée en recherche-création au Département de Théâtre de l’Université Concordia. Stéphane Martelly est la Coordinatrice principale et Médiatrice communautaire au Centre d'Histoire Orale et de Récits Numérisés.
