I am conducting an online survey as part of my PhD project on digital oral history. This survey focuses on digital tools and ethical dilemmas and is open to anyone who has already recorded, archived or disseminated oral history interviews.
Building on an oral history initiative of the Citadel Oral History Program, "ECOS" is a multi-media art exhibit now showing at the Columbia Museum of Art. Nineteen South Carolina Latinx artists have interpreted oral histories of Spanish-speaking immigrant workers in the Charleston area. On the eve of the opening, one of the contributing artists was detained by ICE and has been deported to Mexico.
Does anyone know whether the International Oral History Association has discussed this issue, ethics for oral historians, as applied in other juridical systems? Such as France?
The federal government has most recently proposed a 21 January 2019 national implementation of the revised definition of research, which frees oral history from federal oversight.
However, "institutions will be permitted (but not required) to implement" the redefinition on 19 July 2018.
I cannot guess why the Delaware IRB would believe that the new rule will not go into effect, or that definitions of research will be unchanged. The federal government says otherwise.
