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?
