HIST 10.03 The Dartmouth Vietnam Project: Learning Oral History in a Digital Age

This course explores the theory and practice of oral history, a field in which historians conduct collaborative interviews with narrators to create new records of past events.  Oral history interviews are used to explore both the lives of individuals and the histories of communities.  In some cases, oral history provides a way to access voices and perspectives that are marginalized or absent from the materials contained in traditional archives. The use of oral history interviews as primary sources raises complex questions about narrative, subjectivity, memory, and historical truth.  In this course, students will not only learn and practice oral history interviewing, but also learn how to interpret and analyze the interviews they create.

Distributive and/or World Culture

Dist:INT or SOC

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
