Oral History Summer School: Winter Workshops (New York)

Oral History Summer School was established in Hudson, New York, in 2012, as an immersive training program to help students from varied fields––writers, social workers, radio producers, artists, teachers, human rights workers––make use of oral history as an ethical interview practice in their lives and work.

Oral History Summer School has announced three workshops for their winter line-up. These workshops will be hosted either in Hudson and New York City. The workshops are open to documentarians, journalists, artists, media-makers, educators and those looking to learn new things in good company at any or all levels—no experience necessary.

January Mini-Intensive

January 4–5

Verso Books Loft, Brooklyn, New York

This hands-on workshop––open to all––is based on our popular ten-day intensive, covering oral history theory, method and practice. Over the course of the weekend, the instructors will address interview techniques, recording tutorials, ethics, memory, annotation and experimental outcomes.

Oral History for Educators

January 18–20

Hudson, New York

This workshop is designed for educators who want to bring oral history into their classrooms and learning spaces. The instructors will begin with a rigorous introduction to oral history theory, methods and practice before reviewing existing curricula as a jumping off place to design one’s own curricula/projects.

Oral History: A Queer Art

February 1–2

Bureau of General Services Queer Division, NYC

This workshop will follow the course of the usual immersive workshops by offering foundational oral history training—theory, method, practice—while inviting exploration into the way that oral history values and theory are arguably queer and/or well-positioned to support emergent complex queer narratives.
