Pode a história oral ajudar a adiar o fim do mundo? : Covid 19: tempo, testemunho e história // [Can oral history help delay the end of the world? Covid-19: time, testimony and history]

The text analyzes eighteen interviews carried out between 2020 and 2021 in an oral history project on the daily life of Covid 19, exploring how the notions of time, testimony and history are triggered in the pandemic context. Attention was paid to the narratives of state public managers and low-income undergraduate students on two questions: "would you have anything to add that was not asked?" and “why did you accept to be part of the research?”. These questions gave access to testimonies about the act of witnessing, allowing reflections on history as an experience and as a process of knowledge construction.
