The Ohio Humanities Council has opened registration for its 2015 Oral History Institute, which will take place June 2–4 at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. The program trains participants in planning and conducting successful oral history projects.  

Emphasizing hands-on experience, topics covered in the three-day schedule include interviewing techniques, transcribing and archiving, and devising public programs based on oral history. To develop these skills, participants will work on a practice project that encompasses all stages of oral history. Additional sessions cover using technology in oral history, fundraising, and civic tourism.  

The Institute faculty includes professors of history, sociology, archiving, and journalism, each representing extensive experience conducting oral history projects. The Institute schedule provides ample time for students to consult with these experts.

The deadline to apply is April 6, 2015.

Admission to the Oral History Institute is competitive and limited to 30 persons. Tuition of $400 covers lodging for two nights, six meals, and workshop materials. For additional information, contact James Calder at (800) 293-9774 or
