Area Event: Oral History Workshop at UCLA

The UCLA Library’s Center for Oral History Research is offering its biannual oral history workshop for UCLA graduate students, faculty, staff, and community members.  The workshop will provide an introduction to the basics of oral history methodology, including:

- Drawing up interview outlines and questions
- Effective interviewing techniques
- Legal and ethical concerns

The workshop takes place in two sessions.  The first session will cover the general issues and skills involved in conducting an oral history; the second session is optional and will focus on developing and refining participants’own projects and providing them feedback on their interview design and techniques.

Dates:   Saturday, October 2, 2010 and Saturday, October 16, 2010
Time:     9 AM-1 PM
Place:    UCLA Young Research Library Presentation Room, room 11348
             (down the hall to the right side of the circulation desk; note that you’ll have to wait on the portico outside until the library opens at 9)

Workshop leader:  Teresa Barnett, Head, Center for Oral History Research
