Logo of symposium

Prof Julianne Nyhan is delighted to have been invited to take part in a panel discussion on the interface between oral history and digital methods at the “The Life Story in Oral History Practice: A Two-Day International Symposium” to be held in the British Library, Fri 30 June 2023 and Sat 1 July 2023.

The smyposium explains its aims as follows:

A ground-breaking international two-day symposium hosted by National Life Stories at the British Library, re-examining the role of life story recording in oral history interview practice: fieldwork, access and archiving, analysis and future technologies, re-use and public outputs. At a time when the long-form biographical interview is being challenged by tight budgets and outcomes-focussed methodologies, the event aims to raise awareness of the value of the life story (see here).

The panel that Julianne Nyhan and colleagues will participate in on Fri 30 June 2023 is as follows:

15.30–17.00       Democratising access? The interface of new technologies and archived life stories

Panel session on archiving, ethics, preservation and access to life story recordings including new discovery technologies such as voice recognition and auto indexing/tagging

Chaired by Andrew Flinn (Reader in Archival Studies and Oral History, University College London) with Doug Boyd (Director of the Louie B. Nunn Center for Oral History at the University of Kentucky, USA), Charlie Morgan (NLS Archivist) and Julianne Nyhan (Professor of Humanities Data Science and Methodology, TU Darmstadt, Germany and Professor of Digital Humanities (part-time) University College London)
