Giving voice to the Oppressed?
The International Oral History Association as an academic Network and political Movement.
Aims and Scope
The International Oral History Association (IOHA), founded in the late 1970's, is one-of-a-kind in the academic landscape. Its members, driven by the desire to democratize historical scholarship, wanted to give groups who - until that point, had not been heard - a voice. The authors deal with the academic approach and the political convictions of the previous generations.
