Introduction to Oral History Workshop: March 11, 2016

The Oral History Center will be holding our 2nd annual spring workshop on Friday March 11, 2016 on the UC Berkeley campus. This workshop is designed for people who are interested in an introduction to the basic practice of oral history and serves as a companion to our more in ­depth Advanced Oral History Institute held in August.

This workshop will focus on the “nuts­ and­ bolts” of oral history including methodology, ethics, practice, and recording. It will be taught by our seasoned team of oral historians and include hands­-on practice exercises. Although space is strictly limited, everyone is welcome to attend the workshop, including community-­based historians, teachers, genealogists, public historians, and students in college or graduate school. The cost is $125, which includes lunch.

Registration is open now here!

Please contact Shanna Farrell at with any questions.
