"History is Happening Now: Socially Distanced Oral Histories" Virtual Workshop

Free Virtual Oral History Workshop

No Longer Available


Conducting an oral history interview with a friend or family member is a great way to not only learn more about their lives, but also capture those memories for future historians. And there’s no reason why they can’t be done while “socially distanced”! Join archivists Jennifer Shaffer Merry and Perri Pyle to learn more about how to conduct an oral history interview when you can’t be face-to-face. We’ll discuss important steps like defining your purpose, asking the right questions, and using the right consent forms, as well as the ins and outs of how to record and store a virtual interview. History is happening now - and you can be a part of recording it!
