It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

New from Cambridge University Press!


Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Oral History
Subtitle: The challenges of dialogue
Edited By: Marta Kurkowska-Budzan
Krzysztof Zamorski
Series Title: Studies in Narrative 10

Oral History: The Challenges of Dialogue shows contemporary oral
history at work in a variety of contexts, levels, and engagements. The
issues developed in the book correspond to different stages of research:
preparing and conducting the interview, evaluating and analyzing the
collected material, publishing in the broad sense of speaking to different
audiences, and finally, addressing the dilemmas and philosophical
reflections with an emphasis on ethics. This book aims to address oral
history from two perspectives. The first is the perspective of oral history
as dialoguing, the second is the presentation of concrete situations,
research, persons, and their own stories as built on the solid ground of
discourse and within a concrete context. The chapters embody the
experiences of the authors, their efforts and successes, as well as their
failures in dialoguing with narrators. Unveiled in this book is the
extensive breadth of contemporary oral history work, bridging
epistemological and methodological horizons.
