The Computational Analysis of the Interview Dynamic in Oral History

 

Friday, November 23, from 10am to 12pm

With Jumayel Islam and Robert Mercer

Oral history is a conversational narrative, structured by the back-and-forth between interviewer questions and interviewee responses. Yet we tend to analyse our transcripts as though the interviewer was not in the room. The workshop will introduce the COHDS community to path-breaking research into a new methodology that will help us analyse this interview dynamic – isolating moments of reticence, hedging, deflection, silence, boosting, and so forth. It will change your practice. This initiative is part of the “Living Archives of the Rwandan Diaspora,” a SSHRC-funded partnership development project between COHDS, Page Rwanda, and the Geomedia Lab.
