Our 2017 oral history workshop is geared toward those who are new or moderately new to oral history methods and fieldwork. Participants will think critically and creatively about the dissemination of oral histories and the impact recorded narratives have on communities and audiences. The workshop will be held in Atlanta, Georgia from July 16-22, 2017.

Open to undergraduate and graduate students, professors, educators, and SFA members, participants will learn SFA-devised methods and approaches to oral history, audio recording skills and techniques, an intro to digital photography, and hear guest lecturers from Atlanta-based documentarians. The week will culminate in documenting oral histories of Atlantans.
