    Dear Colleagues,

    I invite you to join me for a free webinar; How to Oral History.

    Oral histories are increasing in popularity as the archives and public history world attempt to repair the historical record and balance the variety of voices represented in the collection. Oral histories as a concept have existed in cultures dating back to the first centuries of human civilizations. They're incredibly valuable because they can capture so much contextual information in addition to the recollections being shared. It also acknowledges the authority of the storyteller and grants agency that few other historical records can. However, oral history education has often existed on the fringe of our field and if you've never conducted an oral history before, it can be intimidating. This webinar will layout some of the basics for how to oral history including equipment, research, question construction, permissions paperwork, conducting the interview, and post-production. But, more importantly, we'll discuss strategies in managing the interviewer-interviewee dynamic, and your responsibility for the wellbeing of the interviewee. By the end of this webinar, you will have the confidence and knowledge you need in order to successfully conduct your own oral history interviews.
