By Nicholas Ng-A-Fook (ed.) and Kristina Llewellyn (ed.)
The interdisciplinary group of scholars in this book address issues of social justice in a global context by drawing on oral history as a form of consciousness―not just a method or approach to overcoming historical marginalizations. They show the special role oral history plays in cultivating historical consciousness of what is excluded, pushed aside, or made invisible, and thus is an important mode of public education in current contexts of national redress and reconciliation initiatives in North America and abroad. A significant contribution of this work is to explicate how oral history is critical to an understanding of the complexities of culture, as well as to historical consciousness.
