Silence in Oral Narratives

Presiding Officer: 
Meghmik Mardian, Independent Scholar

Oral narratives are an integral part of our cultural learning process, allowing people to interconnect with past and future generations through shared experience; however, due to shame, fear, guilt, etc., that oral tradition is sometimes disrupted, leading to a fractured narrative that withholds crucial information from future generations.
