The Regional Oral History Office (ROHO) at the University of California, Berkeley, is offering a one-week advanced institute on the methodology, theory, and practice of oral/video history. This will take place at The Bancroft Library on the Berkeley campus from August 13-17, 2012. The cost of the five-day institute is $950.
Designed for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, college faculty using oral history interviews as part of a research project, the institute is also open to museum, institution and community-based historians engaged in oral history work. The goal of the institute is to strengthen the ability of its participants to conduct research-focused interviews and consider the special characteristics of interviews as historical evidence in a rigorous academic environment.
