Workshop: After the Interview: Post Processing for Future Access

Event Date: 
Thursday, September 28, 2017 - 18:00

 

The After the Interview: Post Processing for Future Access workshop is the second of three workshops in the Introduction to Oral History workshop series. This three-part series provides an overview of the underlying principles of oral history and the practical aspects of undertaking an oral history project. In these workshops you can learn: how to design an oral history project and budget your time, methods of interviewing, technical skills needed to make quality audio recordings, and how to create complementary text documents that will ensure your project is organized, archivable, and useful to future researchers.

 

This workshop session covers strategies for processing oral history interviews so that they can be easily accessed into the future. The emphasis of this workshop is on methods and tools for transcribing, and using this process as a foundational step in creating and organizing all of the documents needed for archiving. After this workshop you will know how to budget for post-processing tasks, complete them in the most efficient way possible, and organize your files so that they are easy to navigate and access.

 

See the "Workshops" page on the OHC website for the full workshop description. Participants who complete this series will receive a certificate of completion and a one-year OHC Membership.
