    Baylor University Institute for Oral History invites you to join its online, live audio workshop, “Getting Started with Oral History.” The interactive workshop will provide six hours of instruction on two consecutive Wednesdays, February 5 and 12, from 10:00 a.m. CST to 1:00 p.m. CST. You may take part in the workshop from the convenience of your home or office computer via Cisco WebEx. This introductory workshop, designed to help participants plan and begin an oral history project, will be taught by Institute faculty and staff members Adrienne Cain, Michelle Holland, Steven Sielaff, and Stephen Sloan. Participants will create a project design and conduct an oral history interview as part of the course. The cost is $100, which includes the two sessions, online access to all reading materials, and ongoing consultation for your oral history project. CPE credits are available for Texas K-12 teachers. There is room for only 40 participants, so register soon!

    Time: February 8, 2020 to February 9, 2020
    Location: University of London
    Organized By: London Centre for Interdisciplinary ResearchEvent Description:
    For decades, oral history was considered less than scholarly, leading to its exclusion from several history books; thus valuable first-hand experiences and information that could alter historical truth were neglected and ultimately lost to oblivion. Our conference wishes to challenge the pervading view that oral testimony can lead to false representation of historical events and underline the significant support it can provide to historical research, especially in lieu of written documentation.
    The journey of a memory through time may change, transform or even become distorted from its primary form. Oral testimony requires a multilevel examination and verification so it can be considered legitimate and useful as historical information, but despite these difficulties, oral tradition can have the power to present an entirely new perspective on an event, future generations can then interpret it freely.
    The conference will focus on the connections between oral history, collective memory, and individual memory. Whether from a historical, social, or even psychological perspective, we wish to engage scholars in a multidimensional and interdisciplinary approach in order to deeply explore all aspects of this valuable and fascinating area. We are committed to creating a welcoming space for discussion, collaboration, and exploration of oral history’s potential as a tool for local, national and international projects that would enrich and even revise chapters of history.
