Creating and Using Oral Histories in the Preservation of Traditional Resources
August 8, 2017 - August 10, 2017
Vanishing Teasures 2017 Special Topics* course
LuAnn Jones (NPS); Brenna Lissoway (NPS)
In this course, participants will learn how to effectively plan and implement all phases of an oral history project and will explore how interviews can in turn help inform preservation treatment plans. Using case studies, classroom presentations and a practicum, participants will gain the tools they need to gather reliable historic information through the use of the spoken word.
Vanishing Treasures’ Special Topics workshops offer additional exposure to burning preservation topics facing our National Parks. They are offered in additional to the standard progression of Foundation, Core, and Materials courses.
