The Queer Newark Oral History Project
is hosting a FREE oral history workshop
led by Timothy Stewart-Winter on
Wednesday, August 31, 2016!
The workshop will run from 1:00pm to 4:00pm (before the Rutgers-Newark graduate reception), 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 Times, Journal of American History, the Journal of Urban History, and Dissent. And be sure to check out his latest article on Slate!
The workshop is open to Rutgers University-Newark students, researchers, and community members. Lunch will be provided at no charge to participants.
