Abstract / Description

This article explores the representation of the voice in texts about oral history over the years, arguing that too often it has been seen as a mechanism for retrieving otherwise inaccessible testimony rather than as a rich medium in its own right. Such a stance, however, is being modified, it suggests, as new digital technologies develop the potential to breach the chasm between the oral and the written.
