Oral History Workshop Preparation

  1. Download Workshop Handout
  2. Read the chapter “Learning to Listen” from the Oral History Reader (nice examples of actual interviews and how interviewers unintentionally interrupt the memory process).
  3. Review one or more of the oral history online archives (links on Oral History home page). Notice how the archives are organized and which LGBT+ issues are represented; experience / listen to some of the stories. We’ll hear some of these during the workshop too.
