DOMINGUES, Adriana Rodrigues. Aging, narrative experience and oral history: a meeting and some experiments. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.31, pp.551-568. ISSN 1519-549X.

This article presents a reflection about the place of the aging in the current context, denouncing the ideological practices and discourses that promise successful aging and that justify certain management of this stage of life. As proposition, it considers the aging as privileged place for the oral narrative of life stories caused by the method of oral history. It discusses the use of this method as research and intervention, and presents some experiments conducted or supervised by the author. The meeting between the aging, the narrative experience and the oral history is a way to preserve the witnesses and the evidence, from the past and the present, that claim the identity and modes of subjectivity.

Keywords : Aging; Life History; Oral Narrative; Oral History; Memory.
