RS 304: Women in Religion: Oral Histories

According to the Oral History Association, "Oral history is a field of study and a method of gathering, preserving and interpreting the voices and memories of people, communities, and participants in past events. Oral history is both the oldest type of historical inquiry, predating the written word, and one of the most modern, initiated with tape recorders in the 1940s and now using 21st-century digital technologies."

We have several books that can help you with your oral history project for this class. It will also be helpful for you to consult the following page of principles and guidelines, also from the Oral History Association: http://www.oralhistory.org/about/principles-and-practices/
