BHSC 218 - Oral Traditions


Credit(s): 3
Oral Tradition presents the theory, practice and uses of oral history as well as its 
legal and ethical issues. Through field work, students will gain experience in interviewing, transcription, recording, video and analysis skills while studying the advantages and limitations of oral history as source material. Readings and case histories will be examined from a number of societies around the world as well as from the United States. Students’ coursework will culminate with an original oral tradition project based upon their own family history.   

Only open to students in the B.A. Liberal Arts and Sciences program.
