Oral History, Part II: Institutional Storytelling

Talk, in English, 7 July
Oral History, Part II: Institutional Storytelling

Albena Yaneva presents her ongoing research into curatorial practice at the CCA, a project informed by oral history and fieldwork based on anthropological methods. Janina Gosseye will act as respondent to further a discussion of issues specific to institutional oral histories.

Albena Yaneva is Professor in Architectural Theory at the University of Manchester. Janina Gosseye is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Queensland School of Architecture.

Toolkit invites scholars to reveal their tools and reflect on them in a convivial atmosphere. The 2017 Toolkit for Today seminar, “Oral History,” will consider the potential and challenges of oral history as methodology and its use for historians and critics as a source of information or as a way to collect evidence that is otherwise difficult to document. This seminar, like its counterpart on 4 July, is a moment when the week-long discussion surfaces in public.
