Oral history is a social research methodology unit. It utilises approaches developed in the social sciences and applies them to conducting and interpreting interviews that record individuals' memories of past events and experiences. This unit introduces the interdisciplinary literature that underpins the method; the skills and ethical issues involved in conducting oral history interviews; and the challenges and processes of interpreting and presenting the insights and information collected through oral histories. It also provides an opportunity to conduct, interpret and present an interview with a person of your choice.
