Oral History and Content Analysis

Amy, I, too, have been interested in ways to analyze an oral history interview. I read accounts by scholars in other disciplines and tried to apply them to oral histories. In my book, RECORDING ORAL HISTORY (2015), I have a chapter on this and I analyze one oral history that I carried out. I direct the reader to other ways of doing this because I don't think there is only one way: a lot depends on the kind of interview you are working with. Valerie Yow

Thanks for this great question. I am interested, as well. I am looking forward to revisiting your book, Valerie, and would love to hear what responses you received. Amy, as well.
