Werkgroep Oral History Huizinga Instituut

The Oral History Working Group consists of researchers and teachers with an interest in evoking personal memories through interviews, creating oral sources, and analysing them in the broader context of memory cultures.

The group meets several times a year to discuss current research and developments in the field, sometimes around a specific theme. Besides focusing on the theory and practice of oral history, the influence of digital technology on the field is also discussed.

The working group promotes reflection and discussion on oral history as a source and method, and also aims to strengthen the discipline and make it visible. One of the ways we do this is by looking for common ground between different contexts in which oral sources are used: transcending disciplines and both within and outside the academy. Experts and interested parties are therefore expressly invited to participate in the meetings.
