The Queer Newark Oral History Project is offering a free oral history workshop led by Timothy Stewart-Winter (bio below) on Wednesday, August 31, 2016. The workshop will run from 1:00pm to 4:00pm, and will cover key issues such as: How does one plan an oral history project? What are some of the best practices for formulating interview questions? How does one identify a narrator? What are some of the ethical considerations that oral historians face when creating oral history projects? This will be an interactive, hands-on workshop.
This workshop is open to Rutgers University-Newark students, researchers, and community members. Lunch will be provided at no charge to participants.
