Spring into Methods – Advanced Interviewing and Oral History Theory and Practice post COVID-19

April 19 @ 10:00 am - April 22 @ 1:00 pm

These ‘advanced’ online-taught oral history workshops will provide Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences doctoral students with an opportunity to focus in more depth on some of the key theoretical issues in oral interviewing, how to undertake successful interviews remotely (phone and online) and develop their interviewing practice through discussion of specific problem issues and scenarios. The 2022 workshops are designed for those PG students using oral interviewing techniques who have already accrued some practice in interviewing. They should also have ideally undertaken prior oral history OR interviewing practical training. Latter is not compulsory though.

Intended learning outcomes include providing students with deeper knowledge of remote interviewing methodologies in an era of social distancing and of oral history theory and a more critical awareness of the theoretical challenges that oral historians navigate in their research. Also an appreciation of the legal and ethical obligations surrounding oral historical research and issues around managing trauma in interviewing. We also discuss oral narrative methods and different approaches for analysing and disseminating interviews and related data. There will be opportunities to discuss students own research plans and interviewing projects, problems and issues arising with seasoned oral history experts, early career researchers and each other. 

Please note: This workshop is designed for those PG students using oral interviewing techniques who have already accrued some practice in interviewing. Participant should also have ideally undertaken prior oral history or interviewing practical training, however this is not a requirement.
