OHNI are delighted to announce that we have our first in-person event – an Interview Skills Workshop – taking place on Friday, 28 April 2023 from 13:00-16:30 at Mary Immaculate College (TARA Building), Limerick.
This interactive, in-person workshop focuses on developing the key skills required to conduct the best possible oral history interview. Following on from our introductory workshops, this training explores the relationship between interviewer and interviewee, examining the practicalities of the before, during, and after stages of oral history interviewing.
Starting with pre-interview planning we discuss decision making around who to interview, how to contact interviewees and how to develop an interview structure, before moving on to the interview itself considering how to ask questions, listen actively, and interpret responses. The final section investigates the interviewer / interviewee relationship after the recording is complete and discusses various approaches and considerations in relation to the sharing and publication of people’s interviews.
Registration for the workshop is now open at the following link: Interview Skills Workshop – Oral History Network of Ireland (oralhistorynetworkireland.ie). The fee is €35 (Members)/€55 (Non-Members).
