    • Abstract:
      This article makes the case that a merging of the thematic focus of the 'life history' approach to oral history and close analysis of aspects of narrative practice such as tradition orientation, repertoire and narrative activity will usefully inform the work of scholars concerned with oral historical approaches to, in this case, the study of migration narratives. It will demonstrate several ways in which close analytical work on the aesthetics and practice of oral narrative, developed in the context of folkloristics, can be combined with the life history approach in order to achieve deeper insights into the oral history of migration.
