Tutor – Judith Fyfe
It is the great events that make history but ultimately, it is the individual’s perception of events that matters. The collection of oral testimony, based on individual memory, enriches the store of historical evidence to reconstruct the past whether that past is a collective public one or a private, familial one. This 5-day workshop will provide the essentials of oral history research including methodology, project planning, best equipment, interview techniques, legal and ethical issues and processing oral history in order to make the material available for use. The course involves plenty of hands-on practice.
