Description

Strong: Storytelling and Authoring History
-The first challenge of interpreting oral history is to discover truth and meaning among your collection of oral histories, which contains many different perspectives that may, at times, directly contradict one another. The next challenge is to speak with authority and to shape a narrative thread that presents a clear history for public audiences based on that collection. This workshop will consider a few different paths forward through these challenges.

Bryan: The Art of the Interview
-The Abbreviated Life Story Model is a critical aspect of the Oral History in the Liberal Arts method. This session provides a tactical introduction to interviewing that emphasizes just a few key “depth” questions to frame the encounter between interviewer and interviewee for a conversation that is at once structured and entirely open-ended. This session will return to the concept of informed consent as the guiding logic of oral history and best-practice driven interviewing in higher education while providing a tactical model that can be easily taught to undergraduates with little to no qualitative methods training.
