The Baylor University Institute for Oral History invites you to join its online, live audio workshop, "Getting Started with Oral History." The interactive workshop will provide six hours of instruction on two consecutive Wednesdays in August—August 2 and 9, from 10:00 a.m. CDT to 1:00 p.m. CDT. You may take part in the workshop from the convenience of your home or office computer via Cisco WebEx web conferencing software.
I am pleased to share with you news of the oral history podcast coming out of the Archives of Lesbian Oral Testimony http://alotarchives.org/blog.
Our podcasts speak to broad themes of interest to all oral historians. The format is as follows: we interview someone who has undertaken oral history interviews and play a clip from one of their interviews. The clip is discussed, and we ask for a specific tip on doing oral history. We conclude with updates from the ALOT archivist.
Over the last couple of years, I have grown disatisfied with CDs as a way to return audio interviews to narrators. In terms of reciprocity, I want to use whatever medium is most convenient for narrators.
