Oral History An (incredibly brief) introduction Jenny Crane

Oral History An (incredibly brief) introduction Jenny Crane & Gareth Millward Part I What is oral history?

What is oral history? Spoken testimony as historical evidence A source of new insights and

perspectives that may change our view of the past For more, see the Oral History Society

Where did oral history come from? Growth since 1980s Improved, accessible recording equipment New historiographical approaches

BUT is it robust? And is it really accessible? Whose history? A history from

below? Or a new history of the elites? Is it history?

Is it journalism? Is it sociology? No.

Maybe. Research ethics You must get ethical approval before interviewing anyone

This is to protect your interviewees, the university, and you Ethics is not the same as morality

Some final considerations What are our data? Should we fact check? How do we deal with informed consent?

Are our interviewees co-authors? Should we anonymise? Part II

Some examples NHS70 Voices of the University
