This workshop considers the role oral histories play at heritage sites and the challenges they pose. Looking at Qasr al Hosn and other heritage sites in the UAE, we consider the best practices for oral histories, the limitations of inherited memory, methods of collection and methods of sharing them with the public, both national and international.
In partnership with Qasr Al Hosn (DCT) and Dhakira Center for Heritage Studies at NYUAD.
