Telling the Story of the Community

October 24, 2019 at 6:00 PM | Bridgeton, NJ | Cohansey Cafe
Community oral histories provide a way to understand perspectives and experiences from more than voice. How do you record and preserve this type of information in an ethical and accurate way? How do you navigate the roles of the interviewer and interviewee? In this hands-on, guided session, participants will develop themes and questions, conduct practice interviews, and talk about legal and ethical considerations, especially as it pertains to vulnerable populations.
