It is supported by the Franco-German Cultural Fund. A first training session was organized on Oral History by Lucine Taminian and Falestin Naili, at the Institut Français du Proche-Orient (Ifpo) in Amman for 8 teachers and 16 students. The participants were in charge to collect stories, pictures, songs and other materials related to the period of the First World War in their communities. The files recorded in the field have to be preserved and catalogued by the Department of the National Library of Jordan.
The workshop covered the central concepts necessary to understand, conceptualise, and implement a sound digitization campaign according to current standards used by professionals, in relation to oral history methodology.
