The Regional Oral History Office (ROHO) at the Bancroft Library is now accepting applications for a week long advanced institute on the methods, theory, and practice of oral history this August.

The Institute is designed for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, university faculty, independent scholars, and museum and community-based historians.

Each day-long session will focus on interviewing techniques and foundational aspects of oral history projects. Participants will also have the opportunity to workshop current projects.

Amy Evans, the former Oral History Lead of the Southern Foodways Alliance, will be the keynote speaker. Institute faculty will include historians and directors from ROHO.

Space is limited to 40 participants so we urge you to apply as soon as possible.
