Title Narratives about the Jewish minority in Sweden or a narrative about Sweden?
Author(s) Thor Tureby, Malin
Date 2012
English abstract
Textbooks about oral history usually discuss methods for how to collect and analyze interviews, that that you as a researcher has been part in creating and collecting. Very little has been written on how to reuse interviews already collected by another researcher or interviews created and collected by an archive, museum or other cultural institution. There has been some discussions on the ways in which oral history has informed the creation of cultural heritage and contributed to the producing of public or collective memories that make certain versions of the past public and render other versions invisible. These discussions have often concerned oral history in museums and to some extent in archives. How do we approach interviews that may have been collected maybe 50, 20 or 10 years before we use them, interviews that have been collected by someone else in a different social, political and scientific context and/or purpose than we have as contemporary researchers? This paper will suggest a method for how to problematize and work with interviews that have been created/collected by a cultural institution.
