Interviewing as a technique of gaining information is as old as humankind. Talking to people as a form of scientific inquiry about their experiences is fun but also a methodological and theoretical challenge. In the past decades, oral history has become a widely used research method in different disciplines. Given that oral history is a technique and a way of constructing histories this series of podcasts tries to offer an overview of different ways of how to construct the information and how to analyze it in a wider methodological context.  This podcast on oral history is designed for those who want to use interviewing as a method collecting empirical material. It consists of eight sections: oral history development historiography politics of oral history, connecting social and personal, ethical and legal dimension, practicalities, questions and questioning, narrativity, interpretation

The sections are around 20 minutes each.
