XV CONGRESS OF THE INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF ORAL HISTORY

September 23-26, 2008, Guadalajara, Mexico

The preliminary preparations for the Fifteenth International Congress of Oral History "Oral History exchanges in the present ," which will take place at Mexico’s University of Guadalajara , are nearing completion. The academic program has accepted more than 650 submissions from oral history specialist from five continents. Among the topics with the highest number of participants are those that reflect upon the memories of violence and war, memory and politics, gender, memory space and migration, in addition to work on the 15 topics outlined in the call for papers.
 
During this important conference, organized by the International Oral History Association (IOHA), the University of Guadalajara, and the Mexican Association of Oral History (AMHO), workshops will be given and organized by Antonio Montenegro and Regina Neto, Mario Camarena, Linda Shoop, Ann Cvetkovich and Mary Marshall Clark, Mercedes Vilanova, Juan Jose Gutierrez, and Maria Valladares, Laura Benadiba and Miren Llona. These theoretical and practical classes will touch upon various issues such as memory and oral sources, oral life histories, memory and trauma, publishing interviews, teaching oral history and video editing for oral historians.

In addition to the conference’s academic program, a series of cultural activities have been planned which will allow those attending the conference to learn more about Mexican culture, giving them an opportunity to appreciate Guadalajara’s architecture and cityscape that have been declared a World Heritage Site.
 


I am looking forward to seeing everyone in Guadalajara between  September 22 and 26!

THREE EXCITING MASTER CLASSES (IN ENGLISH) IN MEXICO

Master Classes are intense half-day workshops with a maximum of 25 participants. They will take place on the day before the conference, on Monday, 22 September 2008. Both beginning oral historians and seasoned practitioners are encouraged to apply.

Master Class 1: Memory, History, Trauma and the Practice of Oral History
This Master Class is taught by Mary Marshall Clark (Columbia University Oral History Research Office) and Ann Cvetkovich (Dept. of English, University of Texas at Austin). It will look at four major questions in exploring how oral history supports the documentation, the memory and the interpretation of trauma.

1. Philosophical Questions: How does the philosophical definition of the mission and historic practice of oral history support the process of documenting individual and social trauma? Do we think of our narrators as agents or victims as we record narratives of loss, destruction and even genocide? How do we balance these narratives with stories of activism, and the reconstruction of community life?

2. Methodological Questions: What are the methodological assumptions that flow from our philosophical considerations? What are the distinctions between oral history, testimony, psychologically informed interviews, extended life histories and the more journalistic documentation of the immediate aftermath of traumatic events?  How do these genres apply to various situations of trauma?

3. Organizational Questions: What does it require organizationally to direct an interviewing project on the experience and history of trauma? What kinds of supports do interviewers require? What supports should be offered to narrators? What ethical considerations must be applied to the conduct, processing and interpretation of interviews?

4. Interpretation: Through what mechanisms, and for what purposes, are findings recorded and analyzed? How is the task of interpretation shared between the oral historian and the historical witnesses to and participants in, traumatic events? What role does the public play as audience to the archive of collective memory of struggle and loss? What is the role of the individual interviewer in assigning meaning to the experience of trauma and its interpretation?

Participants who apply to attend the workshop will write an extended abstract of their experience in documenting trauma through oral history, or their reason for wanting to conduct, archive or interpret interviews of traumatic experiences and events. Send your abstracts to Mary Marshall Clark mmc17@columbia.edu  and Ann Cvetkovich cvet@mail.utexas.edu  by 1 August 2008.

Master Class 2: Video Editing for Oral Historians

This Master Class is taught by Juan José Gutiérrez (CSU Monterey Bay, USA) and María Valladares (Independent Graphic Designer).

With readily available technologies, most researchers today can produce high quality audio and visual materials. This workshop allows participants to explore in a practical fashion steps to capture, edit and produce short clips from oral history interviews. The aim of the workshop is to enable researchers and practitioners of oral history to become familiar and comfortable with some of these tools.

The Workshop will be divided into three segments or modules. 

I Capturing Interviews in High Quality Digital Format,
II Editing Short Clips, and
III Post-Production.
Participants will be able to explore how a short clip is produced by presenters and will take home a practical manual with step-by-step procedures that will be useful when practicing with their own projects.

Master Class 3: Preparing oral history interviews for publication

This Master Class is taught by Linda Shopes, a freelance editor and consultant, specializing in oral history. She has worked on, consulted for, and written about oral history for more than twenty-five years. She currently co-edits Palgrave's Studies in Oral History series; and is co-editor, with Paula Hamilton, of Oral History and Public Memories (2008). She has served as book review editor for the Oral History Review and co-consulting editor for oral history for the Journal of American History; and is a past president of the Oral History Association (USA).
Although oral history interviews are often quite compelling and persuasive, they do not necessarily speak for themselves. If interviews are to form the basis of a book or other publication, they need to be edited, contextualized, and interpreted. And a distinction needs to be made at the outset: interview based publications are different from edited transcripts, which nonetheless are sometimes referred to as publications. Transcripts are essentially verbatim renderings in written form - albeit sometimes edited lightly for readability - of what has been said orally; they are primary sources. Publications are polished productions, even as they are firmly grounded in a body of oral history interviews. They are secondary sources that represent an author/editor's controlling intelligence, although the narrator's voice (or narrators' voices) may dominate the text.

The Master Class will look at some of the issues and approaches involved in editing, contextualizing, and interpreting oral history interviews in preparation for publication in print. Participants will:
* compare, analyze, and discuss the differences between verbatim transcripts and edited versions of the same interview,
* examine different ways of presenting and contextualizing an interview in publications, and
* have the opportunity to practice editing an interview excerpt suitable for publication.
In preparation for the Master Class participants are advised to read the following:
Frisch, Michael 'Preparing interview transcripts for documentary publication: a line by line illustration of the editing process' in Michael Frisch, A Shared Authority (State University of New York, Albany, 1990). Shopes, Linda. “Making sense of oral history.” History Matters, http://historymatters.gmu.edu/mse/oral/

Participants are invited, but not required, to submit five to eight pages of a work in progress in advance of the workshop for consideration by workshop participants. Workshop examples will be selected from work submitted, as appropriate. Send material to lshopes@aol.com  by August 1.
