with Nadia Hausfather, Ioana Radu, Elise Olmedo and Piyusha Chatterjee
English (Q&A in En/Fr)
Oral history interviews are dialogic conversations between two (and sometimes more) people. Just as looking back and reflecting on one’s past can be an emotional experience, interactions between people also have an affective dimension. How do we attend to our emotions and that of others in oral history research— during interviews and in analysis? This workshop will encourage thinking through emotions as an important part of doing oral history research.
Nadia Hausfather’s work examines the emotional tenor of student activism around the 2012 students’ strike; Ioana Radu’s oral history project with Chisasibi Eeyou attends to emotional wellbeing of communities as an important part of healing and decolonisation; Elise Olmedo has been working on alternative ways of mapping that allow emotions, sensations and affective dimensions of stories to be mapped; and Piyusha Chatterjee’s interviews with buskers brings up emotions and embodied feelings related to urban space that convey marginalisation and displacement in a post-industrial city.
