An introduction to conducting an ethical and successful oral history

We are pleased to invite you to attend an introductory oral history interviewing skills workshop, conducted by one of the OHWA’s very experienced life members, Jan McCahon Marshall.
Come along so Jan can introduce you to aspects of an interview such as: gaining written consent from an interviewee; confidentiality; questioning techniques; the completed interview, and more.
This is the first in what we hope will be a series of small group workshops to be conducted throughout the coming year.

Covid interrupted our earlier attempts to host this workshop, but we anticipate that we’ll have more success with planned small group workshops in the coming months. Masks are not mandatory, but you may prefer to wear one.
