2015 Oral History Workshop

2014 SFA Oral History Workshop participants outside Delta Bistro in Greenwood, MS.

This summer the SFA is changing up the format of our annual oral history workshop.

For 2015 we’re offering an oral history workshop providing training for students and members in SFA-devised oral history methods focusing specifically on processing, production, and dissemination of oral history interviews.

With guest lecturers in audio, film, and digital humanities, the week-long workshop will offer participants an environment to explore avenues for producing and publishing their oral history work. It focuses on various ways to imagine content, engage with audiences, and experiment with new forms.

If you are a current student (graduate or undergraduate) or an SFA member and are currently working on an oral history project in its early and mid-stages, we invite you to apply. Diversity scholarships are available to two student participants.

Applications are due by Tuesday, May 5, 2015.
