Job Description (if URL to posting not available). Please include instructions for how to apply.: The DC Oral History Collaborative (DCOHC) is a city-wide initiative to document and preserve the history of Washington’s residents and communities through the collection of oral histories. The project surveys and publicizes new and existing oral history collections provides grants and training for scholars and amateur historians to launch new oral history projects and contributes interviews to the DC Public Library’s Special Collections archive where they are preserved as a resource for residents and scholars.
HumanitiesDC is looking for an experienced oral historian and trainer who can facilitate three (3) public workshops based on the Collaborative’s existing training module. The existing training module is a workshop comprising three (3) two-hour sessions. The contractor will also produce another, shorter training based on the existing module. The shorter training will continue to adhere to oral history best practices but will be more accessible and streamlined. The new module will also be designed to be taught to volunteer trainers so that they can, in turn, conduct the shorter workshops for other audiences.
