Un paseo por la ciudad a través de la memoria colectiva y proyectos nacionales en Malmö y Copenhague

Abstract
The project developed by three institutions in Denmark and Sweden –Malmoe School of Education, City Archives of Malmoe and the Cultural History Workshop in Denmark– uses the methods of oral history as an instrument in the production of historical awareness.

The project developed by three institutions in Denmark and Sweden –Malmoe School of Education, City Archives of Malmoe and the Cultural History Workshop in Denmark– uses the methods of oral history as an instrument in the production of historical awareness. It tries to elaborate multiple histories at several levels –nation, regional, local; ethnicized and gendered, social and political history– through open, oral narratives, organized as thematic, guided walking city tours. Our main target-groups have been immigrants and refugees, and pupils from schools and high schools. The project has a clear emancipatory perspective: in the interplay between teller and audience, the practice of history-telling becomes the search of a common existential explanatory frame. History is presented as the result of highly dynamic processes of constructing collective memory, or collective oblivion, in which the acts of remembering and forgetting are linked to shifting social and personal frames. The project builds upon two main directives: the oral, physically embedded transmission of history, and the structuring of the narratives according to multiplicity of alternative interpretations that include different communities within the frame of both geographical and social spaces. Democratic dialogue is the key word. (Less)
