Join historian Brandi Burns for a hands-on workshop on conducting oral histories. The workshop will be in two parts: part one covers interview basics and part two is for groups interested in conducting a community oral history project. During the first hour of the workshop we will cover basics such as: identifying people to interview, developing questions, how to use digital recording equipment, and how to preserve the recordings for future use. The second hour we will cover how to plan a community oral history project, including developing a budget, writing a project plan and assigning roles, and what to do when the project is complete.
