Interviews and Oral History workshops

This practical course is intended for those wishing to use interviews and oral history as a strategy for data collection. This course will be structured as a series of seminars, combining lectures and projects in small groups. 

The course has three aims: (1) improve skills for those wishing to create recorded interviews as part of their data gathering, (2) introduce processes involved in the preparation, conduct, and processing of recorded interviews, and (3) discuss questions relating to the dissemination, preservation, ethics, and budgeting of interviews and resulting materials.
