Call for Submissions
All of our online e-workshops are recorded and provided afterwards to our participants through our cloud-based sharing platform, Box. Therefore if you can not make the live session for some reason the only thing you miss out on is the ability to ask questions during the Q&A portion (we always encourage post-workshop questions via e-mail however!).
Hope this helps,
Senior Editor/Collection Manager - Baylor University Institute for Oral History
So many people ended up on the waitlists for our January workshops that we decided to offer another round this May. Register now - these always sell out!
Join us for an intensive day of workshops with OHMA faculty and alumni!
Our second round of ONE-DAY ORAL HISTORY TRAINING WORKSHOPS are on Saturday, May 5, 2018, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
We have received a video recording of an oral history conducted with a parapalegic gentleman who cannot sign a consent form or write out his restriction instructions. I checked the video, and the volunteers conducting the interview did not record his verbal consent or his restriction instructions on camera.
In a situation like this, should we ask that his power of attorney complete and sign the consent form on the narrator's behalf? Or is there another approach? What is best practice in these circumstances?
I appreciate the advice of experts such as yourselves.
Join us June 16, 2018 for Drawing from the Past: A Nonfiction Comics Workshop. Cartoonist Marek Bennett will teach the ins and outs of creating comics using primary source texts such letters, diaries, oral history transcripts & recordings, photographs and other materials.
We'll have examples on hand or bring your own!
