New Publication: Oral History and Education. Theories, Dilemmas, and Practices

News from Apr 24, 2017

New anthology of the series "Palgrave Studies in Oral History" containing an article by CeDiS-employees Dorothee Wein und Dr. Cord Pagenstecher has been published

The article describes the learning environments developed by the Center für Digitale Systeme (CeDiS) at Freie Universität Berlin, and reflects on their approach, realization, and reception. To contextualize these considerations in a transatlantic debate, the authors discuss the specifics of Holocaust Education in the perpetrators’ country and the educational possibilities of an “encounter” with video testimonies in classrooms.

The book "Oral History and Education. Theories, Dilemmas, and Practices" ed. by Kristina R. Llewellyn and Nicholas Ng-A-Fook investigates the practices of oral history and provides a comprehensive examination of the conceptual approaches, methodological limitations, and pedagogical possibilities of oral history within formal and informal educational settings from around the world.

The book is available in English language as an eBook and a hardcover book. Members of the FU have access to the articles free of charge within the campus network of the university.
