Power and Democracy: The Many Voices of Oral History XVIIIth International Oral History Association, Barcelona, Spain: 9–12 of July 2014

The International Oral History Association will hold its next meeting in Spain at the University of Barcelona, July 9–12, 2014 (master classes will be held on July 8). Its theme will be Power and Democracy. The force of democracy as well as the resistance it has met have prompted oral history projects around the world. Interviews with advocates of change have supplemented and supplanted archives of discredited regimes. Oral histories have documented social and political upheavals, reform movements and reactions. Oral histories have revealed the effects of power relationships that exist between citizens and their governments, workers and employers, students and teachers, and the layers within institutions, communities, and families. As a democratic tool, oral history records and preserves the memories, perceptions, and voices of individuals and groups at all levels and in all endeavors, but that raises questions about what to do with these interviews and how to share them with the people and communities they reflect.  Power and democracy will be the theme of the IOHA’s meeting in Barcelona, with the sub-themes:

  • Archives, Oral Sources, and Remembrance
  • Power in Human Relations
  • Democracy as a Political Tool
  • Oral Sources and Cultural Heritage
