This book contains the extended abstracts of papers presented at the 8th International Conference of the Czech Oral History Association (COHA) entitled “Divided, yet Together: Boundaries from an Oral History Perspective”. The conference was jointly organized by COHA, the Institute for Contemporary History of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, the Institute of Ethnology and Social Anthropology of the Slovak Academy of Sciences, v. v. i. and the Department of Ethnology of the Academy of Sciences of the Comenius University in Bratislava on 9 and 10 February 2023 in the premises of the Faculty of Arts of the Comenius University in Bratislava.
The papers at the conference worked with the concept of the border and dealt with the whole spectrum of current methodological, ethical, and practical aspects of oral history. They reflected the fact that since the beginning of this decade, the oral history community worldwide has faced many challenges in which it has been operating at the limits of its existing capabilities and standards. The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted a rethinking of previously established methodological practices and ethical principles. The rhetorical metaphor of “crossing borders” has taken on a whole new, tangible dimension in light of the current war in Ukraine. The main aim of the conference was to share and discuss these new insights.
