Oral History Training Workshop
San Francisco: August 5-7, 2010
This stimulating and informative three-day workshop will provide the training necessary for participants to launch their own oral history projects. While drawing on references and examples in the performing arts, the workshop is designed to be equally appropriate for those involved in anthropology, cultural studies, institutional history, social history, regional history, family history, master’s or doctoral studies, or other projects.
The 16th annual oral history training workshop will be carefully designed to match the experience levels of all participants— beginning, intermediate, or advanced. The lecture/discussion format will include opportunities to apply the material presented. The workshop will cover:
• Project Design
• Legal/Ethical Issues
• Technology and Funding
• Transcription and Editing: producing research- quality documents or other final products
Fee: $350. Pre-registration required. Major credit cards accepted.
Fee includes a 200-page syllabus/guidebook containing all the material taught in the workshop, special readings, and other vital information. In order to give personal attention to each participant and project, the workshop is limited to 30 participants.
