DC Oral History Collaborative: Oral History 101+

January 23, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


This course, led by Anna F. Kaplan, PhD., will introduce Washingtonians interested in becoming oral historians to the best practices of doing oral history, to empower them with the basic tools for developing their style and approach to preserving DC’s rich past through oral history interviews.
This course is structured to follow the full cycle of an oral history interview, from conception to processing. We will discuss practical and theoretical considerations of doing oral history in order to demonstrate the distinctive, interdisciplinary mindset that oral historians take to their work. Because oral history is best learned “on the job,” the instructor will ask you to do activities and to discuss your experiences along the way.
There is a lot of material to cover, so participants will also be asked to do some reading and exercises prior to each session.

This workshop consists of three sessions – registrants must commit to participating in all three sessions.
