A one week advanced institute on oral history-the methodology, theory and practice-is offered by the Regional Oral History Office [ROHO] at the University of California, Berkeley, August 11 - August 16, 2002. The lead faculty are Richard Candida Smith, the new director of ROHO and professor in the Department of History at Berkeley, and Luisa Passerini, Professor of History at the European History at Florence. Tuition is $600.
The Institute is designed for graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, college faculty and independent scholars planning to use oral history interviews as part of a research project, as well as commuity historians and others engaged in oral history work. The goal of the Institute is to strengthen the ability of participants to conduct research-focused interviews, to incorporate oral histories into teaching, and to consider, in a rigorous academic environment, the special characteristics of interviews as historical evidence. The Institute directors and additional faculty will integrate participant projects into a series of connected seminars, workshops and demonstrations presented during the week. Institute faculty will attend the entire week.
