Abstract:
From the precis -- 'As a study into the practice of oral history in the museum context, this thesis takes three museums as case studies. The Powerhouse Museum's La Perouse Exhibition; Susannah Place House Museum and The Sydney Jewish Museum have been
selected. They are all museums that are concerned with social history, focusing on communities that have been, to some extent, neglected or marginalised in the past by dominant historical concerns. These museums feature oral history and illustrate that it is a rich source of research evidence and display innovation. In all cases, the authority that the testimony maintains is a result of community involvement in the museum process.'
