Eventbrite - Anti-Oppression PSN Series Video Chat #4: Before recording begins: using anti-oppression in the pre-interview process

In this chat, we’ll consider together what it means to approach the pre-interview process from an anti-oppressive framework. We’ll dig deep into the heart of “informed consent”, looking at the kinds of conversations that narrators, interviewers and other oral history project participants/stakeholders might have with each other before an interview takes place. What information is exchanged or decisions made? How can these pre-interview discussions (or negotiations?) help ensure that the interview (and all that follows!) is a liberatory, equitable, and fruitful experience for all involved?

Co-facilitators:

  • Manissa Maharawal, Writer, Scholar, Activist (manissamaharawal.net)
  • Sarah K. Loose, independent oral historian, community organizer and popular educator;  Groundswell founder & co-coordinator.
