Say what!? Folklore and oral history interviewing workshop next week

We are getting very close to our "Introduction to Folklore and Oral History Interviews" workshop, which will take place next week, Thursday, January 27th, in Cupids.

The workshop is open to anyone with an interest in local history, culture and folklore. If you are thinking of doing any sort of interview-based research in your community, this is the workshop for you! It is intended to give a background on how to conduct research interviews in the field, and will give people a chance to try their hand at creating interview questions and conducting an interview. 

The workshop will provide an overview of the methodology and explore the practical matters of creating, designing, and executing effective oral history research projects. Topics that the workshop will address include project planning, ethical issues, and recording equipment. 

The workshop will be taught by folklorist Dale Jarvis with the Intangible Cultural Heritage office, Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador (yours truly), AND you get lunch. How sweet is that? If you want in, you need to book ahead.

Date: Thursday, January 27th, 2011
Time: 9:30am – 3pm
Workshop fee: $30 (including lunch, preregistration required)
Location: Cupids Legacy Centre, Cupids
