People, Place, and Voice: Oral History Basics Workshop

Have you wanted to learn the basics of oral history interviewing but didn't know where to start? Join us for a one-day oral history workshop at the upcoming American Society for Environmental History conference in Riverside, CA, on March 14.

This workshop will focus on the collection and use of oral history by environmental historians and the broader heritage and history community. The workshop will examine oral history preparation, choosing and using equipment, interview techniques, the role of archives in oral history production and use, and interview analysis. Attendees will share project experience and ideas, explore oral history strategy, conduct practice interviews, and participate in group discussion. This will be an ideal learning experience for the novice, a great review and networking opportunity for all, and a time to explore the role of oral history in environmental history. Class size is limited to 30, so be sure to register soon when signing up for the conference!

The workshop will be led by Donna Sinclair, Washington State University-Vancouver; James Lewis, Forest History Society; Debbie Lee, Washington State University; and Kathy Newfont, University of Kentucky. The $60 fee includes lunch.

If you have questions, please contact James Lewis of the Forest History Society.
