Oral history in Latin America : unlocking the spoken archive by David Carey( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This field guide to oral history in Latin America addresses methodological, ethical, and interpretive issues arising from the region's unique milieu. With careful consideration of the challenges of working in Latin America -- including those of language, culture, performance, translation, and political instability -- David Carey Jr. provides guidance for those conducting oral history research in the post-colonial world. In regions such as Latin America, where nations that have been subjected to violent colonial and neo-colonial forces continue to strive for just and peaceful societies, decolonizing research and analysis is imperative. Carey deploys case studies and examples in ways that will resonate with anyone who is interested in oral history."--
Calendario civile : per una memoria laica, popolare e democratica degli italiani( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in Italian and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un originalissimo progetto collettivo all'insegna della storia e dell’impegno civile, il libro – firmato da un gruppo di studiosi e intellettuali prestigiosi – lancia e articola la proposta di un "Calendario civile", parallelo a quello religioso, scandito da 22 date celebrative di passaggi cruciali della nostra storia democratica e della nostra tradizione repubblicana. Fin dai primi anni del secondo dopoguerra, la questione di una ritualità altra, di un ciclo dell’anno laico, si è posta come fondamento di una comunità civile. È in questo spirito che si sono cominciati a celebrare avvenimenti del nostro Risorgimento come la Breccia di Porta Pia o la proclamazione della Repubblica romana, e si è ripreso a festeggiare ricorrenze come l’8 marzo. Non è stato un processo semplice: certe date, come il 2 giugno, hanno avuto un’origine istituzionale; altre, come il Primo maggio, sono state faticosamente riconquistate; altre ancora, come quelle della strage di piazza Fontana o del G8 di Genova, sono sorte dal basso e fanno parte di una memoria tuttora in formazione. I 22 capitoli di questo libro narrano dunque di un calendario in divenire; essi non si limitano alla sola ricostruzione di ciascuna data, bensì la connettono a un contesto storico e geografico più ampio. Così, le pagine dedicate alla data del referendum sul divorzio rinviano anche alla celebrazione di quello sull’aborto e alla storia della riforma del diritto di famiglia. Allo stesso modo, l’occupazione delle fabbriche o il Primo maggio sono l’occasione per raccordare la storia e la memoria del movimento operaio alla sua realtà presente. Così ancora, l’8 settembre non segna solo l’inizio di una nuova Italia, ma anche l’avvento di un protagonismo civile delle donne, di un inedito maternage di massa. E il 3 ottobre riannoda il tragico ricordo del recente naufragio dei migranti di Lampedusa agli infausti precedenti dell’invasione italiana dell’Etiopia. A dare ulteriore sostanza storica a questo calendario, ogni data è accompagnata da una preziosa appendice di brevi documenti di storia orale, di brani autobiografici, poetici o musicali. L’obiettivo è la costruzione di un patrimonio di tradizioni condiviso: la storia e il passato aiutano così a comprendere, trasmettere e ricordare, rafforzando il tessuto della nostra comunità nazionale, sconfiggendo i rischi dell’oblio, e costruendo una cittadinanza capace di non smarrirsi nelle sfide del nostro tempo. Ideato e coordinato da Alessandro Portelli, «Calendario civile» è un progetto nato dalla collaborazione tra la Donzelli editore e il Circolo Gianni Bosio, che oltre a dar vita al volume scritto a più mani, prevede un ciclo di eventi e spettacoli dal vivo intrecciati con i documenti orali contenuti nel volume. --
Bruce Springsteen's America : a dream deferred by Alessandro Portelli( Book )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Weaving from jargon-free critical analysis to a fan's passionate participatory research, this book places work and class at the center of the work of Bruce Springsteen. It juxtaposes the 'uninspiring' work of his characters (factory workers, carwash attendants, cashiers, waitresses, farmhands, and immigrants) with the work of Bruce Springsteen himself as an indefatigable musician and performer. Springsteen is the hunter of invisible game, the teller of second-hand lives of common folks who ride used cars, believe that being born in the USA entitles them to something better, and keep the dream alive even when it turns into a lie or a curse, because what counts is dignity, the spirituality and the imagination of the dreamer, and the life-giving power of rock and roll. This book will appeal both to common readers and fans, and to scholars in fields such as sociology, history, music, cultural studies, and literature"--Back cover
