with Piyusha Chatterjee
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 an oral historian and an interdisciplinary researcher working at the intersection of history, geography and media studies. Her doctoral research is based on an oral history project with street musicians and performers in Montreal. It examines the place of busking within the political economy of the city and explores Montreal’s history, urban space and economy from their perspective. She has worked on several oral history-based projects in both India and Canada, and has experience in conducting interviews with diverse groups of people and in a variety of contexts.
