Free Oral History Workshop June 13th!

Queer Newark will host a free oral history workshop led by Timothy Stewart-Winter on Monday, June 13, 2016.

The workshop will run from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, and will cover key issues, such as:

How does one plan an oral history project?
What are some of the best practices for formulating interview questions?
How does one identify a narrator?
What are some of the ethical considerations that oral historians face when creating oral history projects?

This will be an interactive, hands-on workshop.

Timothy Stewart-Winter is the co-director of the Queer Newark Oral History Project and an assistant professor of history at Rutgers University-Newark. His first book, Queer Clout: Chicago and the Rise of Gay Politics, was based in substantial part on more than thirty original oral history interviews. He is now writing a second book on the politics of HIV/AIDS in the U.S. His writing has appeared in publications including the New York Times, the Los Angeles TimesJournal of American History, the Journal of Urban HistoryDissent, and Slate.

The workshop is open to Rutgers University-Newark students, researchers, and community members. Dinner will be provided at no charge to participants.
