Join CMES Visiting Scholar Dr. Ozlem Ezer (Bogazici University) for a hands-on, interactive, interdisciplinary workshop that will benefit graduate students new to fieldwork or seasoned interviewers. In addition to some key works/readings of oral history, participants will tackle a variety of provocative scenarios inspired by real-life situations and questions.

Discussion will mainly focus on problem-solving and ethical challenges that might emerge before, during, and after the interview, with attention also paid to issues of privacy, safety for researchers and participants, funding sources, and publishing.
