Parc 55 Wyndham Hotel (downtown San Francisco), Mission Room

Sponsored by the Forest History Society

Leaders: Jamie Lewis, Forest History Society and Donna Sinclair, Portland State University

This workshop will focus on the collection and use of oral history by environmental historians and the broader heritage and history community. Emphasis will be on the role of oral history in documenting and interpreting the past and the practical skills and knowledge needed to conduct and preserve recorded interviews. Attendees will share project experience and ideas, explore oral history strategy, conduct practice interviews, and participate in group discussion. The workshop will examine oral history preparation, choosing and using equipment, interview techniques, the role of archives in oral history production and use, and interview analysis. This will be an ideal learning experience for the novice, a great review and networking opportunity for all, and a time to explore the role of oral history in environmental history. Includes lunch.

Fee: $50. To sign up, see the online registration form.
