Oral history is an important research technique for folk studies researchers and community scholars. Traditional Arts Indiana and the Department of Folklore and Ethnomusicology will present a public discussion with Dr. Michael Ann Williams, an experienced folklorist and oral historian. She is the author of numerous works, including: Great Smoky Mountains Folklife, Homeplace: The Social Use and Meaning of the Folk Dwelling in Southwestern North Carolina, and Staging Tradition: John Lair and Sarah Gertrude Knott.
This free workshop will be recorded as part of the Artisan Ancestors Podcast and the public is encouraged to bring their questions to the open forum. Jon Kay, the director of Traditional Arts Indiana and the host of the Artisan Ancestors Podcast, will moderate the program.
