This series presents distinctive works that challenge conventional understandings of not only who speaks for history but also how history is spoken, and for whom. In an era when the possibilities for collaborative research and public engagement are almost limitless – when the term history can at once embrace deeply personal life stories and the broad scope of a public museum exhibit – the need to explore new methodological models and assess their ethical implications has never been so vital. This series, unique in its focus, provides the pivot for a transformative vision of historical practice.
The Art of Participatory Practice
Going Public is a conversation among socially engaged practitioners in theatre, documentary media, the visual and multimedia arts, and oral history that explores how and with whom we collaborate, and why.
Oral History in the Aftermath of Mass Violence
By challenging the ways that survivors of mass violence are typically understood as either eyewitnesses to history or victims of it, the contributors to this volume ask us to go “beyond testimony” to embrace sustained listening and collaborative research design.
