Presented by the Science History Institute, in collaboration with the Genetic Engineering and Society (GES) Center

The Center for Oral History (COH) at the Science History Institute is proud to provide training to individuals interested in learning oral history and research interview methodologies.

For one week, instructors will work with scholars and researchers who are planning or have started research that has interviewing as a core component. During this week individuals are introduced to all aspects of the interview process, including general oral history theory and methodology; interviewing techniques and performing mock interviews; legal and ethical issues; transcription practices; archiving; recording equipment and its use; data management; and other relevant topics. A portion of the week will be dedicated to interviewing skills and practice.

The Science History Institute has been conducting interviews for over thirty years, and is one of the only institutions in the United States to focus its work on oral histories of scientists. While the scope of the training workshop will focus through a STEM lens, individuals of all fields are welcome!
