Oral history methodology is a vital part of the data collection process that enables a complex understanding of human societies in modern contemporary eras. It is a methodology that foregrounds the participation of the public in the process of historical production and dissemination of that research. As such it democratises historical research and opens doors to its practitioners to feed back the research findings to the historical subjects, participants and audiences outside of the academy, necessitating dialogue and bringing to the fore the researcher’s ethical responsibilities.
This will be course delivered over two afternoon interactive workshops in which participants will engage with the theoretical, practical and ethical challenges associated with oral history research. The workshops will consist of a number of introductory talks about themes, group exercises and discussions as well as feedback sessions between participants and the two facilitators.
