Oral Interviewing and Online Archiving with the Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimony

Women and Gender, Theory and Practice Roundtable"We Have No Fear" (Italy, 2017, 70 minutes)
In this three-hour workshop, Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimony (ALOT) founder and director Elise Chenier and archivist Meghan Walley will provide an introduction to ALOT (www.alotarchives.org). Drawing on the diverse levels of experience of workshop participants we will explore some of the pleasures and pains of planning and executing an oral history project, with particular reference to issues of sexuality and sexual identity. In the final hour, we will describe some of the main advantages and disadvantages of building an online oral history archives, which will include a consideration of ethical issues that arise when putting oral history online in open access environments.Soffía Auõur Birgisdóttir, University of Iceland-The Life of Guérin Sveinbjarnardóttir: Male or Female?Bologna, 8 March 1955. Anna and Angela were arrested in front of the Ducati Motor factory as they were handing out mimosa flowers – the symbol of female emancipation in post-war Italy – and were sentenced to a month’s detention at the prison of San Giovanni in Monte, today the site of the Department of History at the University of Bologna. Sixty years later, San Giovanni in Monte is the place where historians bring back to light the stories of thousands of women and men fired from factories and arrested due to their affiliation to the Communist and Socialist parties and left wing trade unions. In the height of the Cold War and the violent repression perpetrated by the police against the workers’ movement during strikes and protests, even a harmless flower like the mimosa was considered a subversive symbol.
