Common Read Workshop: Introduction to Oral History

September 14 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In support of CSUMB’s Common Read “The Best We Could Do” by Thi Bui, we will have Former State Historical Society of Missouri Oral Historian Jeff D. Corrigan lead a workshop on oral histories.

The introductory workshop serves as an informative overview to the field of oral history from initial idea through finished product. The workshop will cover specifics within three sub-categories of oral history: Pre-Interview, Interview, and Post-Interview, including the basics of oral history, project planning, technology, interview setup, writing interview outlines, release forms, legal and ethical considerations, providing access, and a variety of available resources for further information.

Workshop will be held at the national Steinbeck Center. Saturday, September 14, 12 PM -2PM

The workshop is free, but we’d love for your to RSVP here!
