W5. INTRODUCTION TO ORAL HISTORY
Wednesday, March 19, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Tickets — $35
Facilitator: Jeff Corrigan, State Historical Society of Missouri/University of Missouri System
This workshop serves as an overview of oral history from initial idea through finished product, with an emphasis on environmental oral histories. Topics will cover three sub-categories of oral history: Pre-Interview, Interview, and Post-Interview, including project planning, technology, interview setup, drawing up interview outlines, writing questions, release forms, index or transcript, and other topics of interest to attendees. A series of audio question-and-answer examples from several oral histories will be used to hone interviewing skills and provoke additional discussion. In accordance with this year’s conference theme, the workshop will incorporate examples from environmental oral history projects, and can be applied to any oral history interview project.
