About Oral History

 

Oral history is the last and greatest human discovery in the field of historical knowledge. Until now, most people have had access to understanding and interpreting the history of human societies or to the morgue's perception of events and their narratives from witnesses to historical events or administrative and social documents and reports produced for a non-historical purpose. But from the second half of the twentieth century, modern historical knowledge experienced a new understanding and interpretation of historical events that had been neglected before; the oral history.

In other words, alongside the former sources, the third historical source of historical knowledge came to the aid of mankind to find his perspective more and more. Along with this new epistemological horizon, radiance to dimensions beyond the realm of power and politics also came to the fore. That is, if until recent decades, the dominant aspect of historical knowledge has focused on major political events, such as governments changes, revolutions, and wars, the discovery of oral history has led to lesser-known areas of human collective life. In a general definition of oral history, perhaps oral history can be defined as "reporting the experiences and feelings of people who have no name or address in history." Based on this, the oral history of sports, which is based on the accepted principles and methods of the history, is the report of all those whose names and fames will not remain a history if we do not go to them.

In the oral history of sport, as in other areas of community life, narrators provide a more accurate account of their views and perspectives in the light of the knowledge and questions of the interviewees, and add to the richness of historical knowledge of a land and ultimately the world community. The oral history of sports gives us a more accurate picture of the past when the oral narrations of sports enthusiasts, including champions, referees, managers, and fans, with the help of information contained in public files, statistical information, photos, maps, letters, memoirs and other historical material be strengthened.

The oral history of Iranian sports enables historical narrators to share their memories with their words, with their voices and images, through their understanding of what happened today and tomorrow for the next generations. Indeed, careful attention to the preservation and recording of the voice and narrations of sports narrators of oral history will enable us to leave a legacy for future generations. Because today's and tomorrow's generations will inevitably judge us based on their own experiences, oral history allows future generations to think more realistically about the past.

In the oral history project of Iranian Sports, programs were implemented with the above approach.
