|Title:||"Hangin' out" and "Yarnin'": Reflecting on the experience of collecting oral histories||Contributor(s):||Barker, Lorina (author)||Publication Date:||2008||DOI:||10.2104/ha080009||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2165||Abstract:||Weilmoringle or Wayilmarrangkalku means 'old man saltbush' in the Muruwari language. It is a remote Aboriginal community and pastoral property two-hours northeast of Bourke and it is where I grew up. This article explores my ambivalent feelings, triggered by returning there after many years away. In collecting oral histories for community/family research, I am faced with many social and ethical issues, as well as personal ones. I am learning much about the impediments to the application of oral history methods and approaches, which arise from the multiple and interchangeable roles and responsibilities of the researcher as a community person, family member, and researcher. Through 'hangin' out' at Weilmoringle, trying to learn about other people's connections and disconnections to place, I have begun my own journey of rediscovery and reconnection.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||History Australia, 5(1), p. 9.1-9.9||Publisher:||Monash University ePress||Place of Publication:||Melbourne, Australia||ISSN:||1449-0854
