Thinking about Memories and Record from Oral History
February 28, 2011 to March 1, 2011
In this lecture, I would like to explore with you memories shared in a society. Specifically, I will take up the memories about the war of resistance to Japan based on my fieldwork in Shanxi Province, China, and inquire into the process by which Chinese youth who were born after the war come to share these past events as their own without having experienced them firsthand. I will introduce my own process of conducting research and how to perceive memories from fieldwork, and you, the students, are invited to think about what it means to share memories of others.
