  • 9:00 – 10:00 am The nature and history of oral history This introduction distinguishes the field and practice of oral history from other types of interviewing, historical research, and archiving. We will discuss concepts of the self, shared authority and intersubjectivity.

  • 12:15 – 1:15 pm Lunch – open discussion
  • 1:15 – 2:15 Oral history recording, interpretation, public history, and archiving Attendees who have registered in advance may be asked to watch a one-hour recording before the session about recording practices. What do you do once you have your recordings? What are the advantages and challenges associated with emerging technologies and platforms? Introduction to the multimedia public history universe, with examples.
  • 2:15 – 2:45 Trauma-informed oral history – Discussion of interview techniques, challenges, and the literature on trauma-informed narrative.
  • 2:45 – 4:30 Institutional oral history, trauma, and healing This will be a more open conversation among historians about the risks and promise of oral history: oral history in wartime, oral history and vulnerable or marginalized populations. As oral history practice becomes more accessible and ubiquitous, how do narrators and historians navigate issues of agency, safety, control, and power?
