Friday, September 29th, 2017 — 9am to 12pm
Meijer Education Center at the Historical Society of Michigan — 5815 Executive Dr., Lansing MI 48911
The practice of conducting oral interviews is a major accomplishment and an important step to preparing a larger historical project. Those looking to start an oral history project will not want to miss this workshop, which will cover the process of identifying interviewees, developing questionnaires, and conducting interviews. Attendees will also learn the importance of organizing and maintaining oral histories so that they can be accessed by researchers in the future. Presented by Daniel Clark, Oakland University.
For in-person attendees, refreshments will be available. Lunch is on your own. Materials are included with your registration. Any handouts from the presenter will be sent to remote attendees after the workshop.
