Website: Oral History
Actual dates: 6 Apr - 29 May 2020.
Stories are central to the human experience. Shared family stories contribute to a more complete picture of where we have come from and where we are going. In this unit, you will learn about the role of oral history in documenting family history. You will explore the ways in which oral history can complement, supplement, and even contradict written, pictorial, and other records. Practical skills you will acquire include how to record, transcribe, and share oral histories in a written form. You will also engage with ethical concerns and issues that may arise during the process of acquiring and sharing oral histories.
