August 16, 2023, from 11.45 to 13.15 (Romanian time, in English, hybrid format)
The workshop is an introduction to oral history, a method of studying the past from the perspective of ordinary people. Oral history gives voice to overlooked actors of the past and brings to front personal stories often missing in mainstream narratives, media, or history textbooks. It is, at the same time, an accessible methodology that requires skills in listening, asking questions, and storytelling. The workshop includes a discussion after the film Ostarbeiters (Ales Lapo, Belarus, 23 min) and a presentation by Ioana Hașu-Georgiev, who studied the stories of women persecuted during the communist regime in Romania.
