Preserving the Past Through Oral Histories
Listen to America through the voices of former slaves, World War II veterans, and presidents. Learn how oral historians preserve our past by documenting the stories told by the people who lived the history. Capturing an oral history is more than just turning on the recorder; Dr. Mark Tebeau will share best practices for effectively documenting our families, neighborhoods and communities. Join us for an evening of riveting oral histories, and a useful “how-to” for documenting an oral history.
Dr. Tebeau is an Associate Professor of History at Arizona State University, and a member of the Editorial Board of the Oral History Review. An urban, public, and digital historian, Tebeau has directed more than two dozen digital humanities, oral history, and public history projects.
This event is free.
