Oral History in a Pandemic

Oral History Equipment

As Kate Dalhstrand of Army University Press reminds us, this is a great time to do oral history.  Over at Contingent, she offers some guidelines:

  1. Prepare the participant
  2. Prepare yourself
  3. Go in chronological order
  4. Listen
  5. Be willing to leave your notes behind and follow the story.

See how Dalhstrand unpacks these five points here.
