Journey to Justice Leicester and East Midlands Oral History archive are working together to bring you this exciting oral history event.
The day will provide a crash course in oral history. You'll learn about the purpose of oral history, how to plan oral history projects, and how to navigate ethical issues. You'll then get hands-on with the recording equipment, learning how to use it and practising taking oral history interviews. You'll then learn about what to do with your recording afterwards, and how you would go about having it archived. The training day will also include a roundtable discussion with a group of students and academics who use oral history in their research, sharing their experience, thoughts, and lessons they have learned from conducting oral history in the field.
The training takes place as part of the JtoJ Leicester project, and participants are invited to later take part in our ongoing project to conduct interviews to capture the lesser-known stories of the activism, protest, struggles, and experiences of the people of Leicester.
