Lecture Info

The first hour of the talk will be about the digital infrastructure of two projects in which Stef was involved: Veterans Oral History Project - a data base with 1000 audio interviews, and Croatian Memories -  a data base with 500 video interviews with testimonies on war and detention in ex-Yugoslavia. In the second hour, digital skills in relation to audio, video and film will be discussed. Where and how do researchers search for material to use for their research and teaching? Does the potential of digital archives actually reach the envisaged consumers?
