Join Oral History Summer School for a weekend intensive in NYC. This hands-on workshop––open to all––is based on our popular 10-day intensive, covering oral history theory, method and practice. 

Over the course of the weekend, we'll address interview techniques, recording tutorials, ethics, memory, annotation and experimental outcomes. Come all ye documentarians, journalists, artists, media-makers, educators and those looking to learn new things in good company! No experience necessary.

This workshop is offered at a sliding scale, with a limited number of discounted tickets. Early registration is encouraged.

About OHSS: Oral History Summer School was established in Hudson, New York, in 2012, as an immersive training program to help students from varied fields––writers, social workers, radio producers, artists, teachers, human rights workers––make use of oral history as an ethical interview practice in their lives and work.
