Abstract

In this article, I examine the relationship between oral history and anthropology through a discussion of "the production of history." Starting from equating of history to a combination of "truth, fear, and lies," I ask what contributions oral history might make towards our understanding of personal, community, and institutional negotiations about history. Concerned specifically with the politics and possibilities of history in exile Tibet, I focus on the efforts of four individuals to make sense of the past. Their efforts never involve only their "own" story, but those of larger entities as well as the social worlds and politics behind their histories. Access to these stories behind the histories may be aided through use of anthropological insights and methods. In conclusion, I suggest that by studying the production as well as the content of history, we are able to return to a series of innovative and internal 1970s prescriptions for the creation of a critical oral history.
