The Alexander Turnbull Library is offering our popular introductory oral history workshops in Auckland. These workshops are for people considering using oral history in their work, community or personal projects.
Tutors: Megan Hutching, freelance oral historian, and Lynette Shum, Oral History Adviser.
All equipment is provided and participants receive comprehensive resources.
This is a two-day course, limited to 12 participants (first in first served!). You will need to bring your own lunch, or there are limited opportunities close by.
Day one: An introduction to oral history methodology. How to plan an oral history project, choose the best equipment, achieve clear audio recordings, select informants, follow ethical procedures, develop questioning techniques, process oral history, and make the material available for use. Bring a recorder if you have one you intend to use for recording. Exercises to be completed before Day Two will be discussed. Email Lynette.Shum@dia.govt.nz for more information.
Workshops elsewhere and Māori-English bilingual courses are also available. For the bilingual courses, please contact Taina Tangaere McGregor, the Oral History Adviser, Maori, on 04 462 3976.
