Janina Gosseye runs workshop on oral history methods at Canadian Centre for Architecture

Tuesday, 4 July 2017

Janina Gosseye has been invited to the Canadian Centre of Architecture to run a workshop on Oral History Methods in Architecture. With Naomi Stead (Monash University), Gosseye will critically discuss the use of the oral history method in architecural history and theory and consider examples from her own work. The workshop will draw upon the presenters forthcoming book Speaking of Buildings, edited with Deborah van der Plaat, which examines through its four chapters questions of “Constructing History,” “Restituting History,” “Disrupting History,” and “The Unspoken and the Unspeakable.” A public lecture,  Oral History, Part I: Methods and Mistakes (July 4, 2017), will contribute to a series of events which critically examine the methodology and its use in architecture.
