CFP: #Metoo: Oral histories of sexual violence and harassment. 2018 OHA Annual Meeting. October 10-13, 2018, Montreal, Canada

From #believesurvivors to #me too, narratives around harassment, abuse, and sexual violence have become increasingly prominent in the media over the last few years. This panel draws on feminist oral history practice to explore critical questions relating to oral narratives of harassment and abuse. Oral history, with its ability to capture personal experiences and intimate narratives, is well-suited to document experiences of sexual violence, harassment, and abuse. The sharing of traumatic memories can also raise a range of ethical issues for narrators and interviewers.
