Extended deadline (31/5) – CfP Silence is (not) an option: Re-Thinking Oral History post-MeToo

Silence occurs in every oral history interview and comes in many forms. This symposium will readdress these complexities. Papers may focus upon the strategies of historical actors, as well as on the potentially unexpected consequences of breaking silences. We also welcome proposals that reflect on interpreting silence or on the differences between what is said on and off the record. We especially encourage proposals that include subaltern voices and address the history of intimacy, consent and activism.
