15. Oral Storytelling 101

September 26, 2020 @ 10:15 am - 12:00 pm

For anyone wishing to capture stories of elderly family members or special groups in the community, this is the perfect starter course. Oral historian Sara Franklin walks participants through the practice of collecting oral histories through interviews. Beginning with a brief overview of oral history theory and ethics, Sara invites you to engage several exercises: one a somatic/sensory exercise, and another to help you ask better questions and listen more carefully for answers. She shares recorded interview excerpts for discussion, and talks about how to make sense of what you’ve collected.

We are grateful for the support of the Embassy of the United States in Ottawa.
