This workshop will serve to continue the evening presentation of 3/25, offering an interactive, hands-on introduction to oral history as an ethical interview practice through a series of short exercises and prompts. What makes oral history different from other interview styles and traditions and how might we apply these best practices in our lives and work? Oral History Summer School founder/director Suzanne Snider will guide participants through concepts and exercises seeking to integrate ideas—in the act of conversation––from fields including psychoanalysis, trauma studies, feminist theory, and disability studies. We will honor a range of motives, including but not limited to: organizing, amending the record, creating persuasive media and brokering difficult conversations.
