HST 227 - Interviews with History: An Introduction to Oral History

Course Units: 1
(Spring; Lawson) What was history like for men and women who lived it? Oral History is the practice of collecting stories and information about the past from individuals.  In this class, students will read, listen to, and watch oral histories; they will learn theories of memory as they relate to oral history; they will discuss the ethical and legal issues surrounding oral history; and they will learn how to perform, record, and edit an oral history interview.  Students will spend a significant portion of their time working on individual projects wherein they will conduct and interpret oral history interviews and write an essay based on that work.
