Event description

Description

State Library of Queensland and Oral History Queensland invite you to a panel discussion on the practice of interviewing vulnerable subjects whose experiences are often chosen for their emotional vulnerability, powerlessness, trauma or despair.

Moderated by OHQ President Margaret Ridley, the panel will explore the methodology and the ethical concerns of interviewing subjects who are at risk.

Speakers include:

Ann Monsour
Anne has a PhD in history from the University of Queensland and from 2009 to 2014 was an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of History, Philosophy, Religion and Classics. After teaching at Central Queensland University, Bundaberg, 1993-2008, Anne has worked as a professional historian. She has conducted oral history interviews for the National Library of Australia (Forgotten Australians and Former Child Migrants Oral History project) and the Medical Board of Queensland. For over two decades, Anne has been researching, writing and speaking (in academic and community forums in Australia and overseas) about the history of Lebanese settlement in Australia. She is the author of Not Quite White: Lebanese and the White Australia Policy 1880 to 1947(Post Pressed, 2010), several journal articles and book chapters, and editor of two books: Raw Kibbeh: Generations of Lebanese Enterprise (2009) and Here to Stay: Lebanese in Toowoomba and South West Queensland (2012).
