People and Place
To answer one of your questions, my experience of oral history has come through Studs Terkel's books like Hard Times: An Oral History of the Great Depression.
Agreed! Didn’t know about the rigour of oral history, but it makes sense as you described it. I love to hear stories that people tell about themselves and their places too. Just had a few weeks travel with so many fascinating stories- didn’t officially record them but also I can’t wait to incorporate them into future writing. Thanks for your interesting post!
This is really interesting Yasmin, thank you. You’ve got me looking up Oral History now! 😊
