Creating & Using Oral Histories in the Preservation of Traditional Resources

Where: Moose, WY
Jul 21 - 23, 2020

Overview

In this course, participants will learn how to effectively plan and implement all phases of an oral history project and will explore how interviews can in turn help inform preservation treatment plans. Using case studies and classroom presentations, participants will gain the tools they need to gather reliable historic information through the use of the spoken word. During the first two days of the workshop students will focus on best practices for how to effectively prepare for an in-person oral interview. Working in small groups, students will have the opportunity during the final day of the workshop to conduct full interviews with retired and long-time NPS employees, whose interviews will be added to the Grand Teton National Park archives. Post-interview, students will receive instruction on the processing and archiving of oral history materials for future use, ending the workshop with packaging their interviews as a final product that can be turned over to the park.
