DISTANCES AND INTIMACIES
The Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling at Concordia University offers students and emerging scholars an opportunity to present their work at any stage, to exchange ideas, and to connect with other researchers and creators.
The many spheres of reciprocal relationships that exist within oral history processes emerge as intimacies that are temporally, spatially, virtually, historically, and socially situated. With the chosen title of Distances and Intimacies, the Program Committee invited participants to map and explore the production of intimacy and distance in their research, and to engage with these two concepts from a range of different disciplinary, theoretical, methodological, and creative perspectives.
