8 May 2019 Research Interview Workshop

8 May 2019 from 9.00 am – 12.00 pm
Stout Seminar Room

Facilitators:
Professor Alexander Freund (University of Winnipeg) and Associate Professor Anna Green (Stout Research Centre, Victoria University of Wellington).

Professor Freund holds the chair in German-Canadian Studies and is Director of the Oral History Centre at the University of Winnipeg. He has published widely in oral history and migration history. Associate Professor Green’s publications in oral history encompass labour, community, and environmental history, and her research currently focuses upon family memory and historical consciousness. For more information please see: https://www.uwinnipeg.ca/history/faculty-staff/alexander-freund and https://www.victoria.ac.nz/stout-centre/about/staff/anna-green.

Participants in this workshop will be asked to introduce themselves and suggest a question or topic, relating to their research, that they would like the workshop to address. Areas we might also focus upon include: creating space in an interview situation, different formats for interviewing, the role of the tape recorder as a “third participant”, and approaches to conversational narrative. We could also consider issues such as questions as impositions, and the interview as a cultural script.

Date: 8 May 2019
Time: 9.00am to 12.00 noon.
Number is limited to 12 participants. No cost involved.

    Oral History Conference

    Stout Research Centre for New Zealand Studies and the National Oral History Association of New Zealand (NOHANZ)

    A common thread runs through the contemporary work of many philosophers, economists, geneticists, historians and novelists world-wide. Who are we? What unites us? What separates us? As we in Aotearoa New Zealand grapple with the consequences of colonisation nearly 200 years on, questions of personal and collective identity resonate on multiple levels. Do we share any form of collective identity?
