Social Development Studies faculty member Dr. Kristina Llewellyn’s most recent book Oral History, Education, and Justice: Possibilities and Limitations for Redress and Reconciliation (co-edited with Dr. Nicholas Ng-A-Fook) was awarded the Society of Professors of Education 2021 Outstanding Book Award.
This book continues Llewellyn’s scholarship focusing on oral history and education. One of the intentions of the collection is to help educators think through some of the possibilities, as well as the limitations of, using oral history to teach and address difficult knowledge. The collection does not assume oral history as inherently positive, but rather examines what stories are being told, who should tell them, and how should they be told, to ensure that additional harm is not caused. The collection brings together diverse authors who have both lived experiences with the subject matter and/or longstanding research relationships with communities sharing their lived experiences.
