New Workshops: Oral History Winter School 2019

Oral History Summer School was established in Hudson, New York, in 2012, as an immersive training program to help students from varied fields––writers, social workers, radio producers, artists, teachers, human rights workers––make use of oral history as an ethical interview practice in their lives and work.
 
We have three new workshops in January and February of 2019. Workshops are open to all levels of experience.
