Oral History Jukebox Workshop Application | AHA 2018
Call for Proposals: The Oral History Jukebox Workshop
Saturday, January 6, 2018, 3:30-5:30 p.m.
Omni Shoreham, Palladian Ballroom

The Oral History Jukebox is an open, informal exchange where oral historians of all experience levels and backgrounds come together to listen and learn. This workshop will turn an open ear to the granularity of oral history recordings, searching the medium for key insights into the field.

Interested participants are asked to submit a 1-2 minute excerpt from an oral history interview that they find particularly fascinating or instructive, and to briefly explain what this particular moment has taught them about their approach to oral history – whether that be an insight into interview technique, processing, archiving, crowd-sourcing, or program management.

The workshop will open with a lightning round of audio-clip presentations that illustrate a diverse range of lessons learned and teachable moments. Participants will then break into smaller groups to consider additional excerpts and contemplations. The session will conclude with reflections on where the Oral History Jukebox can go next, as we think through ethical considerations for crowdsourcing an online repository of interview excerpts and self-reflections created for and by oral historians.

Final Deadline: December 1, 2017. Please see our CFP page on the American Historical Association website for more information: https://www.historians.org/annual-meeting/2018-program/oral-history-jukebox-workshop.
