Led by Pratt's Special Collections Department, topics will include

  • Choosing your narrator and topic
  • Preparing questions
  • Mastering effective interview techniques
  • Protecting your narrator’s right to privacy and dignity
  • Learning to record using audio and camera equipment to preserve and share your interviews
