thought for the day. When conducting a life history interview always ask: What do you want to be remembered for? and What are you most proud of? I've found these questions elicit thoughtful/moving responses + are so valuable to have once the person is gone.

Recording with my aunt and uncle yesterday who immigrated to Australia from Macedonia. I had never seen this picture of their wedding before- taken in a Fitzroy studio!

“Oral historians are explorers of the unmapped spaces in the historical record. Collectors of stories and interpreters of memory, they are both discoverers of the past and messengers to the future.” ❤️ Great piece project

Are you an oral historian? If you'd like to give an IHR London Oral History seminar paper (this academic year!) about oral history research or reflections on method & practice, send an abstract to joel.morley AT bristol dot ac dot uk

Zora Neale Hurston's Barracoon has so much to teach this week! What a richly layered primary source, but I keep thinking about her methodology-how she builds rapport, treats trauma, crafts questions, views interpretation . . . How 'bout y'all?

Help. Looking for work in progress or publications in environmental oral history with a particular emphasis on climate change.

Had a great discussion in my class yesterday about shared authority (Linda Shopes's early 2000s commentary piece) and empathy & ethics (Kathleen Blee's work on women of the Klan). Students asked superb questions. Loved every minute of it.

If anyone is at a loose end this afternoon I will be sharing some of the oral histories I did with women who worked in Paisley's thread mills . Stories of work, smoking in toilets, effects on the body and friendship.

I am doing my history dissertation on the effects of the closure of the Linwood Talbot plant in 1981 and am looking for ex-employees to interview. If anyone is up for it, or you know someone that might be, please let me know. Please RT!

“Oral history is somewhat of a contested practice as many historians reject oral testimonies as evidence, with many arguing that personal memories are unreliable and so only official documents,” the reviewer writes. Must we continue to fight this battle?

Made my "formal" introductions today as a visiting research fellow at the Centre for Oral History and Digital Storytelling (COHDS). Such an exciting space with wonderfully creative and brilliant voices.

Just a thought but would there be interest in an on-going + life stories project covering London and the M25 area with recordings available . Would you like to be interviewed or volunteer to help with the interviewing?

I’ll never understand why *some historians trust journalistic sources & newspapers less critically than . Journalism uses interviews but almost never preserves the recordings. Oral historians record and archive interviews, making them available as sources.

Beautiful oral history as aural art installation by Kameelah Janan Rasheed, drawn from “Muslims in Brooklyn” project. What are the “gaping holes” in Atlanta’s public history? How can art fill in, restore, even create community from these omissions?
