The Virginia Tech 2013 Veterans Studies Conference will host a free training workshop on conducting oral history interviews. It will be led by staff of the Veterans History Project at the Library of Congress and will show how anyone can help record, preserve, and share the personal accounts of American war veterans.
The session will focus the requirements of the "VHP Field Kit," but the skills for interviewing, documenting, and preserving oral histories will apply to projects of all sorts.
This workshop on Friday, Nov. 9, is open to all members of the Virginia Tech community as well as interested members of the public. It will be held in Shanks Hall 370/380 on the Upper Quad of the Virginia Tech campus.
Seats are limited, so please register online for this workshop at www.training.lib.vt.edu/classesoffered.php.
This workshop part of Virginia Tech's inaugural Veterans in Society research conference, on the theme of "Changing the Discourse," which will be held in spring 2013. Additional information about the conference itself is available on the conference website.
