Collecting Oral History and the Art of Interviewing
Drawing on the interviewing experience of VFC folklorists Jane Beck and Gregory Sharrow, Recording Words is a "how-to" guide for people who are interested in oral history research. This volume presents the basic components of an oral history project, from choosing a topic to preserving the recordings, as well as reflections on the role of memory and learning from elders. The appendix includes such practical materials as sample release forms, guidelines for transcription, and bibliography of related resources. A "must" for oral history researchers.
