If you have ever considered doing an oral history of a family member, friend, or members of your organization or company, this workshop will give you basic information on how to get started. Included will be interviewing techniques, effective procedures, and standards for recording, documentation, and preservation of your work. Workshop instructors are seasoned professionals who have worked for over two decades as oral historians. After this workshop, you can test out your new skills by taking an oral history of your mother for a special Mother’s Day gift!
This workshop is presented in association with the Oregon Labor Oral History Program of the Pacific NW Labor History Association & the Labor Education and Research Center (LERC), University of Oregon.
