Sharing gender stories through Oral History -Marene Elgershuizen and Marina de Regt

With International Women’s Day around the corner, we want to emphasise the importance of listening to and sharing the stories of women. One of the ways to do so, which is also used in the NICC timelines, is oral history.

On 7 March, we invite two experts to share their knowledge about the value of oral history and to answer all your questions.

Marene Elgershuizen, historian with experience in oral history and advocating for women’s rights, will introduce us to what oral history is and why it is a valuable method, particularly for collecting stories of women or minority groups.

Marina de Regt is professor in anthropology at the VU university and will discuss oral history from the perspective of feminist anthropology, which will also lead us to discuss the role of oral history in international cooperation.

This event takes place physically on 7 March from 17:00-18:00. We will gather at the ISS in The Hague in Aula A (Kortenaerkade 12). Sign-up for the event here.
