Event Details

Due to unexpected traffic restrictions around the museum on April 6, this event has been cancelled. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will reschedule at a later date. Please check back for the rescheduled event.


What is oral history, and how does it differ from an interview? How does understanding this difference benefit genealogists, artists, researchers, journalists, teachers, museums, and anyone who wants to preserve stories for the future?

In this introductory workshop, learn the basics of conducting oral history interviews – from planning a project to conducting the interview, and the general skills you need to succeed.

Our guest speaker is Kristine Navarro-McIlhaney, past Oral History Association interim-Executive Director and current OHA Treasurer. Kristine is a Research Administrator at Arizona State University and will be sharing important skills such as understanding your audience and purpose, asking the right questions, and using the right consent forms. Participants will have the opportunity to practice using provided tape recorders. Bring your questions and spend a few hours with the Arizona Historical Society archivists and Kristine as we learn the benefits, tricks and tips to capturing these important stories and preserving them for the future.

At this FREE workshop, you will learn:

  • Planning a project – what to think about and what to do before you schedule the interview
  • Effective interviewing techniques
  • Equipment needs
  • Legal and ethical concerns and how to address consent for your project

FREE EVENT! Seating is limited: RSVP to [email protected] or 480-387-5353.
