The "In Between" 2017 seminar is coming soon!

A banner for the 2017 In Between? seminar

We have the pleasure to announce that the "In Between?" seminar summarising this year's edition of the project will take place at Topography of Terror in Berlin, Germany between 9 and 10 December 2017.

The interest in local history and individual life stories has been on the rise in the last decades. And while almost all agree it is a way to diversify and complement grand historical narrations, the issue remains: to what end. Is oral history a tool of identity formation and empowerment or contestation and – potentially – conflict ignition? How can and should it be used by researchers, but also journalists, artists, project managers?

These and other questions about oral history, its possible applications, results and methods, are the starting point for the seminar "Individuals – Stories – History" summarizing the 2017 edition of the In Between? project. The two-day event will include presentations from study visits at 8 borderland sites: Berlin, Catalonia, Mostar, Prespa, Vojvodina, as well as Albanian-Montenegrin, Hungarian-Romanian and Polish-Lithuanian border regions. The presentations will be accompanied by an opening lectures and two discussion on curating memory and engaging with local history. Their aim will be to juxtapose perspectives of representatives of different fields dealing with oral history, and to show various ways in which qualitative research methods are being translated into cultural and academic projects.

Admission is free, but prior registration is required. To register, please contact Ms Karolina Dziełak: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The event is organised by European Network Remembrance and Solidarity in collaboration with Foundation Topography of Terror and Federal Institute for the Culture and History of Germans in Eastern Europe (BKGE).

 

The story behind the picture

The "In Between?" project is about stories and history, but it is also about pictures. During each study visit, the participants scan archival documents, take hunderds of photos, and record video images in order to capture the wider context of the accounts which are shared with them. In order to emphasize this dimension of the project, each event organised in connection to the "In Between?" has a separate visual identification based on one of the pictures collected by the participants. 

This time, for the seminar in Berlin, it is a photograph from the archives of Ms. Maria Gavra from the Hungarian-Romanian borderland. Here is its story:

Apply for the "In Between?" workshops & study visits!

We have the pleasure to announce that we have launched the application process for this year's edition of the In Between? project. 

The call is open to all candidates age 18-25, including students and freelancers representing various areas of interest that may include history, cultural anthropology, sociology and audiovisual arts, among others. Participants will be given a unique opportunity to gain theoretical and practical experience in documenting oral stories in order to explore 20th-century history by speaking with those who lived it.

After 4-day workshops participants will have learned the theoretical basics of interview methodology, digital video-camera operation, photography, digitalisation of visual materials, archiving and historical context. Then, they will be divided into groups of six to travel to border towns and other localities for seven days. During their stay they will conduct and document interviews with local inhabitants. Recollections, sound and video recordings, photographs, letters as well as scanned documents and other items reflecting the daily life of the communities will constitute a basis for building accounts of their travel that will be shared with historical institutions and local archives, including the National Digital Archive in Poland and the Virtual Shtetl (Museum of the History of Polish Jews)
