Event description

Description

Sarah Rood, professional historian from Way Back When Consulting Historians, will present this workshop. It will provide an introduction to oral history practice, focusing on research, ethics, equipment, interviewing techniques and transcribing. Suitable for students, volunteers, or anyone with an interest in recording oral histories, you will gain valuable insights into the work of doing oral history.

Learn how to prepare questions; about the forms, the ethics and permissions involved; and the top tips to a good interview. Sarah uses real examples to illustrate some of the pitfalls and some of the gems from actual interviews. You will have the opportunity to practise writing questions, as well as to conduct a short interview. Please bring your recording device with you.

Morning and afternoon tea are provided but you will need to either bring or purchase your own lunch.

Registrations are essential and places are limited.
