If you are doing an oral history project or are thinking about doing one, you should apply to attend this year’s Oral History Institute, June 4–6, on the beautiful campus of 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 two-and-a-half-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 and will also have time to consult with experts about planned projects. Sessions will also be available on using technology in oral history and on fundraising. 

The faculty consists of professors from the fields of History, Sociology, Archiving, and Journalism who all have extensive experience with oral history.

We encourage volunteers or paid staff from local historical organizations, libraries, schools, and colleges and universities to apply. Admission to the institute is limited to 30 and is competitive. The cost of the institute is $300, which includes two nights' stay, six meals, and all other workshop materials. For additional information or to obtain an application, visit or contact James Calder at (800) 293-9774 or The application deadline is April 29, 2013.

The Oral History Institute is co-sponsored by the Ohio Humanities Council and The Rural Life Center at 
Kenyon College.
