Bread and Breath: Two Reflections on the Ethics of (Doing) History

Subject

Description

The article presents the views of authors on ethics related to scholarly research. One author stated that it is not always ethical to collect oral histories, but there are also ethical concerns when a historian feasts in the archives. While another author considers whether the institutionalized ethics of historical research can blind historians to the deeper and more fundamental ethical demands of working with the past.
