On September 28, 10am-12pm, the Chevy Chase Historical Society will offer a training workshop for volunteers wishing to assist CCHS in conducting oral interviews. Led by Anna Kaplan, DC Oral History Collaborative Consulting Oral Historian, the workshop will offer instruction and guidance on oral history best practices, interview preparation and techniques, and editing and finalizing interview transcripts.
Since the 1980s, CCHS has made it a priority to capture community history by conducting Oral History interviews with long-time Chevy Chase residents, as well as adjacent businesses and their employees. Oral History is essential for future generations to better understand the lived experience of history, and the many meanings that people make of these experiences.
The workshop is free and will take place at the CCHS Archive and Research Center, 8401 Connecticut Avenue, Suite 1010. As space is limited, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-656-6141.
