Abstract

Oral History in Latin America has had a more belated development than in Europe and the United States, having appeared in the area in the Seventies. Since then, its development has been very slow and fragmentary. Even today, some countries have not yet reached a complete development in the field and its first experiences are still in progress. The permanent political instability which has characterized our countries until the middle Eighties and, as a result, the weakness of universities and academic institutions, have produced discontinuities and difficulties in the consolidation of spaces of reflection and production in all scientific disciplines. The aim of this article is to analyse the characteristics, according to its national differences, of Oral History in Spanish America. I will try to discuss the theoretical and methodological crossroads as well as the prevailing themes and schools facing praxis in the area today.
