This online training will focus on the basics of doing oral history interviews including planning, releases, concerns, Zoom and other audio-visual tips, and publication/posting.
This program is offered free, as a service from SouthJerseyQuakers. We welcome multiple participants from Meetings and other groups.
We encourage Friends to focus on how a Meeting or individual Friends made South Jersey (and other communities) a better place to live. Additional topics, such as how our faith and practices have guided – and enhanced – Friends’ lives are important to record as well.
Melissa Ziobro, Specialist Professor of Public History, Department of History and Anthropology at Monmouth University, and President of Oral History in the Mid-Atlantic Region, will lead this training. She is also the editor for New Jersey Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal, a joint venture of the NJ Historical Commission, Rutgers University Libraries, and Monmouth University.
