The Hudson, NY-based Oral History Summer School announced a new workshop open for registration, which will take place on November 20 and 21, 2021.

This mini-intensive is based on their popular foundational workshop–covering oral history theory, methods and practice–but is designed more specifically to support training among colleagues and collaborators who wish to directly apply the training during the workshop, and to establish networks among organizations approaching common questions. This workshop is well-suited for groups pursuing:

  • Ethical practices for community documentation
  • Oral history collection, documentary, podcasts and/or multimedia exhibits
  • Narrative projects driven by motives of organizing, advocacy, reconciliation, intergenerational dialogue and/or the creation of persuasive media
  • New approaches to listening/communication

This workshop will make dynamic use of mini-presentations, group discussion, interactive exercises and technical training to deliver sessions on ethics, memory, recording strategies, archives, project design, experimental outcomes and more.

All are welcome; no experience necessary. Contact the organizers with questions at [email protected]

Registration open through September 30, or earlier if spaces fill.
