Event Description

The workshop will be virtual and led by Professor Gill Frank, Historian of Sexuality and Religion, and postdoc at the University of Virginia. We are purposely keeping the workshop sizes small, so your spot is a valuable one! Please make sure to mark your calendar and commit to participating in the workshop.

The training will cover:

· an overview of Queer oral history theory and methods

· specific information about best practices for interviewing LGBTQIA narrators

· hands-on time learning the technology and practicing being recorded

· learning how to ask strong initial and follow up questions

· discussion time to discuss ethical and other concerns you may be thinking about

Attending this workshop also allows you to apply for the summer research positions, funded by the GSRC, to work on the Princeton LGBTQIA Oral History Project. After the workshop, the GSRC will follow up with you and let you know the process in case you are interested in applying.
