Introduction to Oral History and Interviewing


Thursday, September 7, from 12 to 2pm

With Marie-Anne Gagnon

*Please be advised that this workshop will be given in French. The same workshop will be given in English on Thursday, September 28, from 6 to 8pm.

This workshop will provide you with some of the fundamentals in the interdisciplinary field of oral history. Participants will learn about the evolution of the field, its approach to interviewing, ethics in research, and the many ways that oral historians now go public with their research and recorded stories. This workshop is strongly recommenced to all new affiliates, as it is intended to present the methodology and ethics developed and followed by our Centre.

As an oral historian, archivist and local history researcher, she has worked with museums such as the Centre d'histoire de Montréal and the McCord Museum. Her current research fields are urban memory and heritage in Montreal. She is also interested in cultural, culinary, post-colonial, and Indigenous history.
