Abstract [en]

This article is inspired by a cultural approach to oral history which argues that narrators drawon public discourses in constructing narratives for an audience. It also contributes to debates in oral history on the re-use of archived interviews, by arguing that the oral historian has to consider how memory institutions create and preserve oral history collections, and contribute to the shaping of narratives of history. By investigating positioning and identification in immigrant collections at the archive of the Nordic Museum from 1970-2015, the article also engages with debates in oral history about collective and individual remembering by discussing how the individual narrators can resist and transform narratives of the museum about categories such as immigrants, Swedes and Swedishness.
