Summary
"Oral history provides a valuable way of understanding locality. This volume considers the importance of working closely with the specifics of place in the context of global issues including environmental concerns and new communication technologies. Developing interdisciplinary connections between oral history, literary studies, and geography, essays in this collection focus on how both oral and written narratives engage with particular places, ranging from Dartmoor and "the clay country" to the River Ouse, from London to the polar regions. Further, this collection considers how oral history interviews themselves--the sounds of voices--are recorded and listened to in particular places: on walks, in theatres, at home on the internet. In doing so, this volume highlights the importance of thinking methodically about place not only in terms of the content of interviews, but also their creation, dissemination, and reception"--
