More on the workshop from the SFA website:
For 2015, the SFA is offering an advanced oral history workshop that will serve as 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 to disseminate 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 the early and mid-stages, we invite you to apply.
