Beyond Testimony and Trauma: Oral History in the Aftermath of Mass Violence

Beyond Testimony and Trauma: Oral History in the Aftermath of Mass Violence (Hardback)

Edited by High, Steven

Survivors of terrible events are often portrayed as unsung heroes or tragic victims but rarely as complex human beings whose lives extend beyond the stories they have told. The contributors to Beyond Testimony and Trauma consider other ways to engage with survivors and their acco...unts based on valuable insights gained from their work on long-term oral history projects. While the contexts vary widely, they demonstrate that - through deep listening, long-term relationship building, and collaborative research design - it is possible to move beyond the problematic aspects of testimony to shine a light on the more nuanced lives of survivors of mass violence.
