2019 Advanced Workshop: Protecting Your Project and Participants

May 22nd - 10am-1pm CST


The Baylor University Institute for Oral History is excited to announce our 2019 offering in our advanced online oral history workshop series, Sharpen Your Skills: Advanced E-Workshops. Our new session, “Protecting Your Project and Participants,” will focus on legal and ethical aspects of oral history and provide guidelines to protect your project, your participants, and yourself during the oral history process. The BUIOH team will discuss:

  • Steps to take to ensure you and your participants are legally protected and ethically compliant when conducting your project
  • Ethical considerations required when sharing oral history materials with the public, particularly when placing interviews online
  • Faithful representation of what was said vs. portraying interviewees in the best light possible
  • Dealing with interviewee edits
  • Ethical case studies regarding and relating to oral history

This workshop will be a single three-hour session on Wednesday, May 22, from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and costs $75. 



Past Workshops

Beginning in the fall of 2015, in response to a multitude of requests for additional training from former participants in our popular "Getting Started" workshop, the Institute for Oral History began offering advanced online workshops once or twice yearly on high-demand topics. These workshops feature a single three-hour session that expand upon facets of the oral history process.

Prior "Sharpen Your Skills" workshops include:

  • Advanced Interviewing Techniques (November 2015)
  • Managing an Oral History Project (February 2016)
  • Processing and Outcomes in Oral History (November 2016)
  • Advanced Interviewing Techniques (May 2017)
  • Digital Tools in Oral History (May 2018)

These workshops will be offered on a rotating basis, with new topics occasionally offered as well.
