OHC historian Shanna Farrell leading the Spring 2015 Intro to Oral History Workshop

This workshop focuses on the "nuts-­and-­bolts" of oral history including methodology and ethics, practice, and recording. It will be taught by our seasoned oral historians and include hands­-on practice exercises. Although space is strictly limited, everyone is welcome to attend the workshop, including community-­based historians, teachers, genealogists, public historians, and students in college or graduate school.
