Recordings of Keynote Speeches

The concept of this conference was to present keynote lectures in duos: two lecturers presenting a project from different disciplinary perspectives. The three keynote speakers were invited to choose a partner with whom they have worked intensively on a particular project. We would like to share the insights presented with everyone who is interested in a multidisciplinary approach of oral history, therefore the recorded lectures have been made accessible, with the slides of the lectures integrated into the recordings. Below you can also find a link to the recordings of the invited lecture by Vesna Teršelič.
