Elderly Southeast Asians experienced great changes in their lives – of war and violence, of the imposition of the nation-state, of economic development – and remember them in different ways. Their oral histories may bear the influence of state-sanctioned narratives, attempt to speak truth to power or reconcile individual and official memories. By taking an inter-disciplinary approach, Oral History in Southeast Asia: Memories and Fragments considers the relationship of these fragments of memory to dominant accounts; it unravels the complex ways through which people remember and make sense of their pasts.
