8 December 2023 | symposium ‘Oral History, one step further’

On Friday 8 December, the ‘Sprekende geschiedenis’ hub will host a symposium ‘Oral History, a step further’ at the RCE (Rijksdienst voor het Cultureel Erfgoed) in Amersfoort.



Backstage, we are busy preparing the programme and are pleased to share that one of the speakers is Rose Mary Allen. She is Extraordinary Professor Culture, Community and History at the University of Curaçao. She will talk more about her oral history experiences in Curaçao and Cuba.


Also, Frank von Meijenfeldt of the ‘Sprekende geschiedenis’ hub will give a presentation on new technical developments not to be missed.



After the plenary session, there will be five interactive workshops:


1. Museums and oral history: Current developments.

2. Preserving and making accessible oral history interviews for small and large projects.

3. ‘Oh, is that how you do it? Sharing experiences of oral history projects.

4. The role of oral history in controversial histories.

5. First aid for transcribing.


For the workshops, several interesting speakers have registered. The final programme with all names will follow shortly.


From Monday 18 September it will be possible to register for the symposium and sign up for the workshops.
