Sixth International Finnish Oral History Network Symposium

Two weeks ago I participated in The Sixth International Finnish Oral History Network symposium: Fragile Memories: Doing Oral History with Vulnerable Narrators, which took place in Helsinki. I presented there our Network and my preliminary findings with regard to the research on Polish Children Born of War and taboo.

Evening of lectures and panel discussion on Occupation Children in Austria

Sensemaker project on CBOW in Vietnam

In August 2016, Sabine Lee and Bob McKelvey made a preparatory visit to Vietnam to prepare the Wellcome Trust-funded pilot project on Vietnamericans in Vietnam and in the US.

The visit also facilitated making contact with the University of Social Sciences and Humanities in Ho Chi Minh City, and it was possible to establish a collaboration with the local Department of Anthropology.

CBOW Fellow Researcher's Stay in Uganda

A particular focus is on children and youth, but many activities are also directed at adults. S
