A Conversation about Oral History — the What and Why

The practices at the heart of the oral history discipline comprise the oldest form of historical inquiry—the passing of knowledge and memory through spoken word. But oral history is also very much a modern methodology. It’s a practice that can yield unique insight on historical events, build empathy, and help document a more inclusive representation of our world. Tune in to this dialogue to discover what oral history provides that the written word does/cannot, and why this practice is needed, among other questions.
