Registration is now open for the Baylor University Institute for Oral History's third in a new series of advanced online workshops titled "Sharpen Your Skills." Scheduled for Wednesday, November 16, 2016, this workshop, “Processing & Outcomes in Oral History,” will discuss the monumental work that awaits you once you press "stop" on the recorder. The four major areas of focus will be:
This month the Southern Oral History Program's podcast Press Record takes on the question of whether oral history can be used as a tool for movement building. We talk with Dan Kerr from American University about his past as a squatters' rights activist and his oral history work with people experiencing homelessness in Cleveland. We also visit with Kerry Taylor and Marina Lopez from the Citadel's oral history program at a recent workshop they held for local activists.
We here at the UAF Oral History Program are reviewing our archival practices. In particular, we are interested in finding out if there has been any new research--and by "new", I mean within the last five years--on best practices for archiving oral histories (digitizing standards, temperature control, etc.). My colleagues and I have searched o'er the Internet and so far the most recent thing we've come across is an IASA paper from 2009.
