Software recommendations for tagging and managing transcribed clips

Hi

I am embarking on a series of life-story interviews from which I will transcribe sections relevant to my PhD research. Any tips on the best software or method to manage these sections of text so that I can tag them according to the themes of my research?

Thanks

Re: Last chance: CFP for a panel on "How oral history can impact a local territory and trigger community action," Oral History in Our Challenging Times 2018 OHA Annual Meeting, Montreal

Hi Alexandra,

I'd be interested in discussing joining the panel. I'm working on an oral history of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia, together with my Liberian colleagues, and have much to share about the relationship between oral history and community action during times of crisis.

Please get in touch if you'd like to connect; my email is klgthomas@gmail.com

I'd be happy to hear from you!

Proposal for panel/roundtable/facilitated discussion at OHA Annual Meeting: Using adults' oral histories to understand their childhoods

For the OHA Annual Meeting in October 2018, I'd like to organize a panel of paper presentations, a roundtable, or a facilitated discussion on conducting and using oral histories of adults to understand their childhoods.  My own research focus is on children and youth during the Cold War; however, the proposed topic would be relevant for scholars in any historical area who use adults' oral histories to learn about their childhoods.

Hello all, with the January 31 deadline pending to submit proposals for the OHA's Annual Meeting in Montreal, Oral History in Our Challenging Times, we are sounding a call for like-minded experiments in oral history for a panel. Our number one inquiry now is how oral history can impact a local territory and trigger community action, and how to share these stories with a broad, listening audience.

CFP Workshop: Sites of Remembering: Landscapes—Lessons—Policies

This workshop aims to discuss, identify and evaluate ways in which social sciences and humanities can use memory studies to engage with the problems we encounter in the world today, and bridge the divide between academic disciplines, and academia and policy. We intend to publish the results of this workshop as an issue in RCC Perspectives, the in-house journal series of the Rachel Carson Center. RCC Perspectives is an open access publication for examining the interrelationship between environmental and social change.
