Moving memories: oral history in a global world
Venue: SMC Confererence and Function Centre, Sydney Australia
Date: 13 – 16 September 2017
Moving memories, our title and main theme, refers to memories generated across space and time, both local and national, as well as cross-cultural and international. It also refers to memories which have an emotional impact on listeners: remembering which move us to laughter or tears. The theme draws on some of the new directions in oral history that address: the impact of migration and asylum seeking around the world; as well as the exchange between narrator and listener that is ‘memory work’, or the emotional labour that is involved in memory practices such as oral history.
