14. The Importance of Oral Histories in Reframing History
September 26 @ 9:00 am - 9:45 am
How does oral history align with, or contradict, received history? Join oral history scholar Sara Franklin as she talks with Kingston writer Laura Murray about how oral history might serve as a useful tool in the current reassessment of what’s important to remember and celebrate. How does it contribute to revealing what has been buried, forgotten, or denied? What responsibility does an interviewer have when collecting oral histories to assess the reliability of “fact”? And where does oral history fit into current conversations around autonomy and appropriation in storytelling?
