1. Oral History Practice
a. Guides and Manuals
In addition to our training webinars and ethics page, we compiled this list of materials meant to serve as an entry point into oral history. If you are interested in undertaking an oral history project but unfamiliar with the discipline, these online resources are a good place to start. They include tips on preparing your project, finding the right equipment and so forth. That said, it is not a comprehensive list; we encourage you to research projects which work within a similar framework as you to ensure you are well prepared.

b. Oral History Remotely
There are a serval important factors to reflect upon when deciding whether or not to conduct your interviews remotely. The relationship between the interviewer and interviewee, the participants’ access to technology, the safety and confidentiality of the recordings, legal differences, and so forth, need to be thought through before making an informed choice. These questions and more are explored by this list of suggested resources. Beyond this, we wish to acknowledge the disability rights activists who have, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, worked to create and render accessible the digital tools we are using today. We invite you to visit the Disability Visibility Project’s website and the Oral History Association’s pop-out on access and inclusion to learn more.
Remote Interviewing Resources (Oral History Association)
This guide is meant to be a resource to practitioners as they work through the numerous questions that arise with remote interviewing.

It also has an accompanying bibliography on interviewing in times of crisis. https://www.oralhistory.org/remote-interviewing-resources/

Immunodeficiency and Oral History (Sarah Dziedzic, 2020)
In this blogpost oral historian Sarah Dziedzic reflects on the longstanding insistence on conducting oral history interviews in person, or “face-to-face.” She argues that we must learn from the field of disability justice to make our practice more accessible. https://medium.com/@sarahdziedzic/immunodeficiency-and-oral-history-85695925dd43
COVID-19 Response: Digital Accessibility and Other Best Practices for Remote Work (Disability:IN).
Disability:IN has compiled the following resources to support disability inclusion work during COVID-19. https://disabilityin.org/resources2/covid-19-response-accessible-tools-and-content/
c. Decolonial and Anti-Oppressive Oral History Methodologies
There is no one way to conduct oral history research, but we must in all cases ensure “respect, trust, knowledge, balance, fairness and decision-making power throughout the entire research process.”1 Anahí Naranjo says, “We must all question our methodologies and ask the question “whose voice is present in this space, whose isn’t, and why is that?”. We must ask ourselves, “whose native land am I on, and what stories were and are present here?”2 With these questions in mind, we want to recognize that Indigenous ways of knowing, including storytelling, have been historically dismissed and erased. Canadians have “told and retold a story,” refusing to attest to violent sides of our history; Indigenous stories disrupt these narratives and push us to “learn-from” by recognizing the implications of our response to hearing them.3 Susan D. Dion writes that “Recognizing injustice and celebrating resistance is a first step toward accomplishing justice. The purpose of our stories is not to assign blame or guilt. The stories are about healing and recovery.”4 (…) Thinking about the ways in which positionality, insider/outsider status, power imbalances, and difference can affect the relationship between the interviewer and interviewee, the outcome of the project, and the interviewee themselves is crucial to the practice of oral history. “Reflexive accounts of one’s positionality/location helps readers understand how authorial identity shapes, enhances and limits scholarship.”5 Shared authority and co-creation have emerged as methods to mitigate power imbalances within the field of oral history, yet the uncritical use of these principles might result in the same harmful consequences of speaking for others. For this reason, we must reflect on how we might obscure our own subjectivity and the “object/neutral” position we are opposing.6 In what follows we would like to share some of the articles, books and projects that our affiliates have been creating.
