HIST 736 - Intorduction to Oral History

[3]
Oral history is a powerful yet complex methodology for creating unique historical primary sources available in no other way. While it seems deceptively easy as turning on a recording device and striking up a conversation, doing so effectively while ensuring that the results are useful and meet accepted professional standards is challenging. While some of the techniques and methodology can be learned from books, mentoring and apprenticeship are essential. Thus, the course will integrate the theory and the practice of oral history and video history.
