1 Online Oral Histories: To Give Voice and Empower (A Voice to History) - HD Information access and the digital divide is a major problem facing many immigrant communities globally. Within the United States, these immigrant communities are often forgotten communities. They are contributors to the U.S. economy and society, but their voices are never heard. As the elderly of these communities past away, their stories are never heard. This is a loss to ethnic studies, Asian American Studies, foreign policies and U.S. history. With the development and emergence of technology, these communities now have a medium for their voice. Technology adds their missing voice to history.

Oral history methodologies have long contributed to the archival field and the preservation of history. However, with the development of digital technology, oral history methodologies have evolved and allow communities to record their stories and share them without limitations, such as medium, access and geography.

Tam Nguyen will discuss how the evolution of digital technology provides a way to (de)colonize immigrant communities, specifically, the Vietnamese immigrant community. Online oral histories, unlike traditional oral history methodologies provide a non-localized medium to capture, preserve, and share the immigrant (Vietnamese American) experience. As many NGOs, CBOs, and other organizations have used the internet as a means to share stories, by incorporating Web 2.0 (and semantic web), there exist more social interactions and develops from a bottom-up approach. This (Vietnamese immigrant community) online oral history project serves as an excellent model and case study. It demonstrates how the integration of evolving technology combined with proven oral history methodologies, (de)colonizes an immigrant community and shatters access barriers and geographical limitations.

What is oral history? by Penny Summerfield The full length Methods@Manchester video can be watched for free at

The mission of oral history in Britain in the 1960s and 70s was to recover lost histories and give ordinary individuals a place in history. The recovery of pasts that leave no trace in conventional records, and that have been ignored by historians and public media, has an enduring importance. It can re-orientate historical enquiry. Since the 1970s there has been a shift from the expectation that oral history produces information, or �data�, to the understanding that oral history gives access to historical subjectivities.

What is Narrative Analysis 2? by Vanessa May The full length methods@manchester video can be watched for free at HP

Narrative research refers to any study that analyses narrative materials, which can range from �naturally occurring� narratives to oral life stories collected for research purposes to written narratives found in the private, public or political realms. One of the main stated reasons for why so many social scientists are interested in studying narratives is because narrative is a basic human way of making sense of the world. Narrative analysis mainly focuses on written or oral texts, but can also be used to analyse photographs, films or even dance performances. Because narrative analysis is inherently interdisciplinary, the field is relatively disparate and there is no one single method of analysis that narrative researchers use.

Digital Storytelling: An Ancient Tradition in the 21st Century Presentation by Anthony Curtis (University of North Carolina at Pembroke) for the 2010 NMC Symposium on New Media & Learning (March, 2010, http://www.nmc.org/2010-nml-symposium)

Digital stories are a 21st century form of mass communication that harks back to the ancient tradition of oral storytelling. It is a contemporary form of mediated communication combining production techniques from television, radio, newspapers and magazines with contemporary multimedia tools to deliver informative, entertaining short productions with text, still and motion images, sound, music and voice. Content varies, but the scripted stories are about the articulation of a coherent verbal expression the voice of the narrator. I propose a presentation on this exciting pedagogy from conception through working with individuals on their stories to completion of projects and uploading. http://www.nmc.org/preso/7656
