|Main author:||Yow, Valerie Raleigh, (Author)|
Provides a comprehensive guide to oral history for researchers and students in diverse fields including history, sociology, anthropology, education, psychology, social work, and ethnographic methods. The text tackles not just the practicalities of interviewing but also the varied ethical, legal, and philosophical questions that can arise, and allows for dedicated discussion of both legalities and ethics. Other new material includes recent research on how brain functions affect memory, more comprehensive demonstration of how to analyze an interview, and details on making the most of technology, both old and new. Each chapter concludes with updated and annotated Recommended Readings and tailored appendixes address new developments, such as institutional review boards and the Oral History Association's new Principles and Best Practices.
