Event description

Description

In a lively, interactive program, folklorist and oral historian Jo Radner will teach us why and how to gather community stories. We will experience the dynamics of interviewing and learn about the kind of listening that can elicit significant stories. Finally, Jo will offer suggestions for ways to make archived oral history collections more valuable to our communities.

An informal lunchtime panel will discuss past oral history projects around Portsmouth, and then Frances Harrell, Interim Director of Preservation Services at the New England Document Conservation Center, will make a presentation on the identification and preservation of audio-visual materials.

Optional afternoon tours will include visits to the Discover Portsmouth Center and the newly renovated Portsmouth Athenaeum.

A brief NHAG annual meeting (9:15 to 9:30 AM) will precede the workshop.

Attendance is limited to 75. Advance registration and payment (online or mailed check) required. Currently enrolled undergraduate and graduate students may register using the NHAG member rate.
