Title: Oral History
Subtitle: The challenges of dialogue

Series Title: Studies in Narrative 10
Description:

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.
