Summer school

School is definitely not out for summer!  This June, Oral History Summer School returns to Hudson, New York (June 13 – July 1).  This program, which is now in its third year, brings together an international group of writers, social workers, radio producers, artists, teachers, and human rights workers with the purpose of helping them employ Oral History in their work.

Picture 1Oral History Summer School 2014 kicks off with an eight-day intensive introduction to Oral History that covers interview techniques, ethics, archives, project design and advocacy.   The week-long intensive will be followed by two production-focused workshops: Oral History and Radio and Oral History Experiments: Project Lab.  This year’s visiting instructors include Eugenie Mukeshimana (Genocide Survivors Support Network), Michael Garofalo (StoryCorps), Sarah Kramer (New York Times, NPR, HBO, PBS) and Jen Karady (Soldiers’ Stories From Iraq and Afghanistan).
